The Victoria State Rose Garden is the largest and best-maintained public rose garden in Australia. So make sure to stop by in November to enjoy the State Rose and Garden Show which is hosted in the gardens every year.
Held during the beautiful Melbourne Spring season, you won’t want to miss the blooms at this year’s annual State Rose and Garden Show. The free event will take place over two fantastic days in November.
State Rose and Garden Show – 2019 Dates & Program, Werribee Mansion
Celebrating its 6th year in 2018, the State Rose and Garden Show will also feature delicious food trucks, plant stalls, lively exhibitors and nurseries bursting with flowers at peak bloom.
Dust off the picnic rug, roam through the 5000 + technicolour roses which span over more than six acres and take in the sights, including the exquisitely manicured grounds of the iconic Werribee Mansion. There will be plenty of delicious food and beverages for purchase in the garden, however, you are welcome to bring along a picnic (no alcohol). Please also note that dogs aren’t permitted at this event.
Located just 30 minutes West of the Melbourne CBD, and there is parking on site and event traffic management systems will be in place. So there is no better excuse for a Spring picnic amongst the shade of the blooming rose vines with family and friends.
