Climbing roses create walls of colour and perfume, while garden paths wind their way through perfumed beds of Hybrid Tea, Floribunda and Austin roses. A collection of Australian and New Zealand bred roses is at the southern end; and to the north set in a cottage garden are many old fashioned and species roses. Manicured beds edged with paving stones complement the magnificence of the entire garden.

The garden forms the western entrance to the Morwell Business District, Civic Centre, Art Gallery and the Justice Precinct. This community project is a continuing work undertaken by the 'Friends of the Rose Garden', volunteers and sponsors with the generous support of Latrobe City Council.

Grand Strzelecki Track


Come and stand in awe under forest giants, or step into a lost world of ancient temperate rainforest equal to any on Earth, yet not hear a sound except the serenade of lyrebirds. Come and walk in solitude through a different rainforest so rare, most people have never heard of it, and far fewer will ever see it.

Come and discover peaceful, beautiful places far from the beaten track and away from the parks all the tourists visit. When you need to reacquaint yourself with the comforts of life, try a home cooked meal in a friendly country guest house or a cosy cabin in a tiny, peaceful hamlet amidst all this natural beauty.
