About Cook's Cottage

Cook's Cottage, the historical home of the famous explorer Captain James Cook’s parents, offers a unique peek into 18th-century English life, reconstructed brick by brick in Melbourne's picturesque Fitzroy Gardens. This quaint cottage is more than a museum; it's a bridge to the past, bringing a slice of Yorkshire to the heart of Melbourne.

Best time/season to visit: Spring and autumn provide the perfect backdrop with the gardens in full bloom or beautifully coloured with fall foliage.
