Fitzroy Gardens hotels
Fitzroy Gardens are a set of Victorian-era manicured gardens on the edge of the central business district of Melbourne, Australia. The gardens cover 26 hectares of space and add to Melbourne’s claim that it is the “Garden City” of Australia. The gardens are known for their large number of beautiful trees that line the pathways snaking through the grounds. This has made Fitzroy Gardens popular amongst scientists and horticulturalists that come for study as well as to enjoy the aesthetic. Since opening in 1848, the gardens have been one of the most popular public spaces in the city.
- Check out the famous Scarred Tree while at Fitzroy Gardens to see evidence of Aboriginal habitation in the area, as the tree bears scars from where Aboriginal tribes removed bark to make canoes.
- Visit Melbourne at night when the Fitzroy Gardens come alive with unique local wildlife including the grey-headed flying foxes and a number of owls.
- Take a trip back in time while in Melbourne with a visit to Cook’s Cottage, the house where explorer Captain James Cook was said to have spent his childhood.
Fitzroy Gardens is situated just on the outside of the central business district of Melbourne so it is easy to get there using the city’s fast and efficient public transportation. If you are taking the train, get off at the Jolimont station that is located on the southern edge of Fitzroy Gardens. There are also a number of tram line stops nearby, so you should have no problem getting there by public transport. Those who want some exercise can cycle to the park, as there are a number of dedicated bike lanes along the way.
