Create an itinerary including Fitzroy Gardens
Located in the heart of Melbourne, Fitzroy Gardens add to the city’s claim to being the Garden City of Australia. Within 26 hectares (64 acres) of the gardens, you will find Victorian-era landscaped lawns and avenues lined with English elms, unusual fountains, and flowers. Visit Captain Cook’s Cottage, the former Yorkshire home of the English captain who discovered Australia. The cottage was shipped and reconstructed stone by stone in 1934. Nearby is quirky carved Fairies’ Tree, a 300-year-old stump embellished with pixies and kangaroos. As you stroll through the gardens, stop at a replica Tudor village. Walk the People’s Path, a loop walkway paved with 10,000 engraved bricks. Keep your eyes open for possums and ducks.

  • This is a lovely green space next to the treasury gardens. You can see Cook’s cottage here and enjoy a walk in the shade. Very close to the city.

  • A magnificent green gem at the border of city blocks. We took a leisurely walk on a sunny Spring day when the rain went away and visited The Conservatory and plants, fairy tree, mini Tudor village, dolphin fountain and park spaces. There are very pretty flowers within and around the conservatory. There's limited metered parking around the park if you are visiting by car.
  • A great space with lots of room for picnics and kids to run around, plenty of history, some art and a lovely conservatory. Accessible to trams and located right next to the treasury gardens. Toilets are unfortunately located in a far corner though rather than at the information centre.
