The Victoria State Rose Garden is the largest public rose garden in Australia. It has four unique shaped designs: the main one is a five petal Tudor Rose; the Federation Leaf is a stylised leaf comprised of 50 beds of Australian bred roses; the rosebud garden is composed of 60 rose varieties; and the heritage border consists of Climbing Species, Old Roses, and Heritage Roses that form a hedge separating it from the mansion. It is the first non-European recipient of the International Garden of Excellence by the World Federation of Rose societies in 2003. The best time to visit is from November to May, and entry is free.
