A lush beautiful garden very close to the city, with many beautiful trees. A lovely spot for picnics. Weddings are often held here

“A peaceful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The Fitzroy Gardens are a far way from most of the major sights of Melbourne's CBD but it is a very pretty and quiet place for an afternoon stroll. Visiting Cook's Cottage is a must do: it is so incredible to stand in the house built by Captain Cook's father that has since been transported here all the way from the English countryside. The Model Tudor Village nearby is not that impressive, there are far better miniature villages elsewhere.

“Nice and tranquil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I often come here for a nice and quiet walk as well as for a picnic. There is plenty of space to hang out with your friends or just to be on your own. Best of all, this is a great place to read.

“So much to enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

These gardens are a lovely space to wander, relax and enjoy. There is a fabulous playground and also interesting green spaces, ponds and gardens. Easy to access by tram ( numbers 96 or 86) or foot from the city.

“A lovely distraction in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

we had to walk through to get to Food and wine festival Long lunch. Fab location guys!!!. We had a great walk, look through conservatory and even managed to ask a staff member about the tree collars (to stop possums damaging old trees for those wondering). We dont always get time to walk in the garden but its was so relaxing to sit there in the shade for a while ( i would invest in some bins tho...paint em green!)
