A remarkable practical achievement in itself, the quaint, red-brick complex that is Cooks' Cottage was dismantled and transported piece-by-piece from its original home in England. Now located in Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne, the cottage serves as a rustic-style, ivy-covered reminder of Australia’s colonial past. Immaculately preserved and authentically charming, the building’s furnishings are all representative of the era in which it was constructed.

Cooks' Cottage Reviews
この施設は施設内の見学に料金が発生します。ほとんどの観光客は外観の撮影のみで入らなないようです。建物が狭いので期待できないかでしょうね。無料ならもっと人気が出るのでは・・・。 more »There is a fee for visiting the property. Most tourists don't seem to get in only for exterior photography. The building is so small that you can't expect it. If it's free, it's going to be more popular.

The house was purchased in the 1930s by an Australian businessman who dismantled it in the UK, transported it to Melbourne, and had it rebuilt there. Although James Cook came from humble backgrounds and the house is rather small, it does not look poor. The ground floor consists of a kitchen and a tiny bedroom, the upper floor consists of a large bedroom and another tiny bedroom. The in-house garden is home to various herbs and crops, which were often cultivated in the English gardens in the 18th century. In the stable adjacent to the house there is a very small museum about the life of James Cook. Conclusion: A short visit is definitely worthwhile. It takes no more than 30 minutes.
Nice slow paced activity for the kids. A wonderful piece of australian history. There is a nearby cafe with outdoor seating, a visitor center and clean water fot drinking. which is great if you want to burn off some of the kids energy
As we used to live near the original in Middlesbrough in England, it was fascinating to visit this brick by brick replica of the original. Our son had been christened in the church that Cook had been christened in, so was special to us. The cottage is set in a peaceful park in the city & has a nice cafe next to it with fresh bread & cakes.
