Beautiful to stroll through at any time of year. Well maintained, wide paths suitable for wheelchairs. Something for everyone. Highly recommended.

If you are passing, it is a good idea to take a break and jump in. But it is nothing compared to the Botanic Garden, which is a must.

The kids enjoyed running around like loons and kicking the footy around. We visited Cook's Cottage in the gardens as well. Later that evening we saw possums in the gardens.

Lovely and scenic. Nice to walk around and take in the history. Cafe was very good considering how small it was.

It’s a lovely walk through the Fitzroy Gardens and Captain Cook’s cottage, the miniature Tudor village and conservatory are well worth a visit.

Very beautiful and extremely well maintained. There's a small village garden inside the Fitzroy Garden. There's Cooks cottage as well inside the garden. Very scenic and calm!

What a stunningly beautiful place to wander. I felt like I was in another country almost - the avenues of trees

What beautiful quiet gardens. Perfect for wedding photos or a picnic. Spend a good hour wandering through here. Do not forget to visit Cook's house set on the edge near the cafe.
