The rose range was good but as its volunteer cared for could be better tended. Happy to have seen it but wouldn't go again unless roses are better cared for.

We visited whilst nearby at Werribee Mansion. Very busy on a Sunday and the gardens were looking lovely. Lots of families about on a glorious day in Melbourne enjoying a picnic.

I visited here with my girlfriend recently. I don't know what we expected, but we found it kinda boring. It's definitely worth taking a look at if you're in the Werribee Park area, but you will probably only stick around for half an hour or...More

If you love roses, and gardens in general then Werribee Mansion is a must place to visit. You can just explore the gardens or inspect the huge Mansion interior/exterior. Every bit of this place is worth it.

A lovely place to walk around even in winter. Very well kept and well laid out gardens. Cant wait to visit again when the roses are in bloom.

I haven’t been back here to Werribee Mansion for so long. I was married here in 1992. It’s just as beautiful now in the Rose garden. The setting so serene. A back drop for Hanging Rock. I recognised it straight away. A must see.
