About
The Mornington Botanical Rose Garden is situated in Civic Reserve on the corner of Dunns and Mornington-Tyabb Road, Mornington and is nestled between the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and the community based Oakhill Gallery. The garden has over 4000 roses planted in 86 beds and is surrounded by a border of native Australian trees and shrubs. It was built and is maintained by volunteers, generous sponsor donations and the support of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The Mornington Rose Garden is open seven days a week and admission is free. However, Gold Coin donations are welcome and will contribute to the maintenance of the Rose Garden. A feature of the garden is a rotunda situated in front of the entrance colonnade, the rotunda provides an appealing area to relax and enjoy the vista of roses with the colour combinations set on an artist’s palette. It has become a very popular venue for wedding ceremonies, proposals and other significant celebrations.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Mornington Botanical Rose Garden comes to bloom in spring, with a great floral display. Apart from the many hundreds of rose bushes, there is a lake and a pavilion. The rose bushes come in a great variety. It's a great place to spend some relaxing time.

Just stunning, I don't think I have ever seen as many roses as this before all in the same place. Definitely worth stopping. While we were there it started raining so we went to the art gallery. The staff were really nice.

The Mornington Botanical Rose Garden is absolutely stunning at this time of the year.Thanks to the hard work put in by the very enthusiastic and friendly volunteers.
There are numerous varieties and all different shades of colour in a well manicured grass area. The whole area is magnificently maintained.

A well tended garden, and now, at the end of September, the roses are just starting to bloom after their winter rest. But there's more than roses, with natives around the periphery, attracting the birds.
An easy walk for anyone and it's free! All looked after by volunteers, who perform a magnificent job in all weathers.

As the name suggests, these gardens display the most stunning selections of roses. . It was alike a trip down memory lane with some of the older roses that you don't seem to see much anymore. The ladies and gents who tend to these gardens must be commended they do a wonderful job and the garden is such an asset for Mornington. The surrounding parkland is also a great way to spend a few hours on a sunny day.

Take a walk around the multiple colours of different rose varieties. Plenty of parking and close to a kids play area, skate park, dog park and lake. Enjoy half hour or more walking around the smelling the roses.

If you like your roses, it is a lovely short walk, looking at a variety of different roses. You can enjoy a nice picnic in the gardens, and then visit the two art galleries, and for the kids a playground, all with in walking distance from the rose gardens.
