Captain Cook’s Cottage

Captain Cook’s Cottage is an 18th century home that is situated in Melbourne, Australia where it is the centrepiece of Fitzroy Gardens. The house is so named because it was once the residence of the parents of Captain James Cook, the famous British explorer. Although historians disagree on whether Cook actually ever lived in the house, most agree that he likely visited it many times in his lifetime. The cottage has an interesting past, as it was actually constructed in England and then taken down piece by piece to be reconstructed here, even using clippings from the original ivy.

  • Stroll around the traditional English garden that surrounds Captain Cook’s Cottage and you will be transported to Victorian England through the array of amazing flowers and plants.
  • Take a tour of the interior of Captain Cook’s Cottage while in Melbourne and you can see furnishings and other artefacts that once belonged to the Cook family, although most are now reproductions.
  • Take a walk around the ornamental lake that is near Cook’s Cottage in Fitzroy Gardens and you will get a good idea of why Melbourne is known as the “Garden City.”

Melbourne has an amazing system of public transportation that makes it easy to get to Captain Cook’s Cottage even if you do not have use of a car. The easiest way to get there is to take the Melbourne Tram and get off at the Jolimont Road/Wellington stop that is just on the perimeter of Fitzroy Gardens where the cottage is located. Once there you should explore the park on foot, as there are many interesting attractions, well-kept hiking trails and gardens to check out. It is also one of the best spots in town to have a picnic.
