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.

  • So green, so calm and relaxing place for those who are tired of the hustle and bustle of the city. Especially in autumn it's an amazing place to walk, enjoy the weak sunshine and of course to take lots of photos! We also enjoyed the small playground in the park. Our baby loved the swing 💖 There are lots of 2P parking spots along the park. Great place to have a family-time!
  • Such a beautiful place to walk through... Especially in autumn. Peaceful and pretty. We even stopped in the little gift shop like tourists.. They had some cute Melbourne themed gifts.
