This cottage was transported from England to Melbourne in the 1930s. It is uncertain if Captain James Cook RN, the remarkable navigator lived here, but his parents did. This quaint cottage is in Fitzroy Gardens, it has a special place in the hearts of the people of Melbourne

Cooks Cottage was built in 1755 in Great Ayton, North Yorkshire for James and Grace Cook, the parents of the famous Captain James Cook who may never have lived there as an adult but he would have visited. Sir Russell Grimwade relocated the cottage to the Fitzroy Gardens in 1934 and it has been an interesting tourist attratction since. It was not open.

Captain Cook's cottages is much-loved by the people of Melbourne. He may have lived here; his family certainly lived here. It's in Fitzroy Gardens; take a look, it's interesting. Captain Cook is the man who put Australia on the map.

The former home of explorer Captain James Cook's family. It is said that captain has visited the place just twice. An old stone house and nothing more to say or to remember.
