Photo Diary | Victoria State Rose Garden

In January I kicked off this new series of photo diaries which began with Mt Tamborine in sunny Queensland (you can find that post right here if you missed it). I always make the time to visit the Victorian State Rose Garden at least once a year when the roses are in full bloom, and it is exactly like a floral paradise.

The hard working volunteers care for over 5,000 classes of roses (covering roughly 5 hectares), and is easily one of the most popular tourist attractions of the state.

From above, the garden is designed to resemble the Federation Leaf to commemorate the Centenary of Federation (I was completely unaware of this until a moment ago) so that is pretty amazing if you ask me!


With the Werribee Open Range Zoo and Mansion Hotel & Spa on the same grounds, it's a lovely way to spend your Sunday strolling through the rose garden followed by high tea, a quick pamper and saying hello to the beautiful African animals. Whether you're a tourist or a local, I highly recommend the visit!
