The pic was taken in Melbourne, too bad the coat is not in my size! LOL hhaha
In the gardens sit Cook’s Cottage, presented to the people of Victoria as a gift for the state’s centenary in 1934.
The cottage was transported from the Yorkshire village where Captain James Cook, one of the first Europeans to chart Australia’s coast, was born and it was the home of Cook’s parents.
Its furnishings and restoration are appropriate to the time in which they lived in the dwelling.
Another feature of the gardens is the conservatory (1930), housing magnificent indoor floral displays that are changed five times each year.
Also in the Fitzroy Gardens are the fairy tree carved by writer Ola Cohn, a model Tudor village, Sinclair’s Cottage, as well as an array of statues, fountains and structures.
