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.

  • 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.
  • So nice to be here during winter time. Love the colours on the trees, The nice fresh air and the cool breeze. Big Park in the heart of the city of Melbourne, a great place for a walk and shake the stress out of yourself disconnecting you for a good moment from the busy streets of downtown.
