The Mornington Rose Gardens is situated in the Civic Reserve on the corner of Dunns and Mornington-Tyabb Road, Mornington, at the gateway to the Main Street shopping precinct.
The Mornington Rose Gardens is nestled between the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and the community based Oakhill Gallery.
