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.

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.
