We enjoyed visiting Cook's cottage, moved brick by brick from his childhood home in Yorkshire. Even the ivy on the walls is from there! There are lovely places to sit in these gardens and have a picnic or just meditate

Fitzroy gardens is a very pleasant place to spend the afternoon, but probably more recommended for people that already live in Melbourne (I would looove to be able to have such place to chill). The greenhouse is adorable.

A favourite landmark for tourists who visit Melbourne. A couple I met found it a good restful place after their Museum and Parliament House visit before they adjourned to the nearby Windsor Hotel for afternoon tea.

Lovely tranquil place in the city, beautiful conservatory filled with colourful begonias. Perfect place to take time out from the busy city pace.

Strolled around the gardens on a warm sunny day in February. Pleasant enough but not a patch on the ones in Singapore. Entrance fee to Cook's House was a bit steep so we didn't bother with that. Nice place but not breath taking.

After visiting the Royal Botanic Gardens, don't miss its wee cousin, the Fitzroy Gardens. This is smaller but altogether charming. It, too, has lots of lovely walking paths, some of the most magnificent trees imaginable (including the precious Fairy Tree), the miniature Tudor Village, and Captain Cooks's Cottage. Absolutely delightful place to see in Melbourne!

A welcome space to walk and breathe just off the city centre, with lots of green grass, and some formal flower beds, in full bloom at time of our visit. We looked at the outside of Captain Cooks parents cottage, but didnt venture in. Lots of Japanese tourists around it. We did go into the very pleasant cafe which was... More

Fabulous green in amongst the city. Very serene place to wander around. Did not go into Cooks Cottage though.
