"Victoria State Rose Garden Victoria State Rose Garden is located in Melbourne, the capital of Victoria, Australia. It is about 35 kilometers away from the city of Melbourne. It is next to Werribee Mansion, known as Melbourne's "Downton Abbey", covering an area of about 5 hectares. The rose garden is arranged and combined in the shape of flowers, with pavilions, fountains and other landscapes interspersed among the five petals. There are more than 200 varieties and more than 5,000 roses planted in the garden. During the flowering season, you can smell the fragrance of flowers when you enter the door. Various roses compete for beauty. It is a favorite place for local residents and tourists for outings and taking wedding photos. The rose garden is completely managed by volunteers. In 2003, it was awarded the International Garden Excellence Award by the World Federation of Rose Associations. The Victoria State Rose Garden does not accept tickets and is free to visit.
