State Rose and Garden Show
Time Out says
Get lost among 5,000 blooming roses at this annual flower festival
If you’re looking for the epitome of a classic spring day then the State Rose and Garden Show is here to deliver. This November, it’s returning for its seventh year and bringing us the perfect combo of beautiful flowers, prosecco and a rose-inspired high tea.
Take a stroll through lush, green fields and vibrant garden beds at the Victoria State Rose Garden in Werribee over one huge weekend. There you'll be able to explore 5,000+ floral displays that span almost three hectares, pick up tips and tricks from horticulturalists, head to live plant care demonstrations, browse the pop-up nursery stalls and go on guided tours which will be running across the whole weekend.
On Saturday, you can head to the wine and beer garden to try craft beers and ciders from Kombi Keg, wine and Roseade Spritzers (rosé lemonade wine spritzers!) from Chirping Bird Wines and American-style barbecue eats from Bluebonnet Barbecue. On Sunday, the Prosecco Van will be joining forces with Mrs Baker's Gin for a rose-inspired high tea by the High Tea Mistress (prices start at $30 and you should book early to avoid dissapointment).
The show will be held over Saturday and Sunday November 9 and 10. Entry is free but you're welcome to make a gold coin donation to help support the volunteers at the Victoria State Rose Garden.
