Fitzroy Gardens and Captain Cook's Cottage
Mo to Su from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PMFitzroy Gardens, with their leafy corridors of trees, ferns and flower beds, are one of Melbourne's favorite places. Another attraction is Captain Cook's Cottage (Cook's former home that was transported from Yorkshire, England, and rebuilt here), which displays the history of the famous explorer's life. Children will be delighted by the Fairy Tree, with its cute carvings of fairies and other "wee folk" and the model Tudor village. Evening visitors can even meet the locals, who come out to feed at night.
