Fitzroy Gardens are a stone's throw from the main CBD attractions and are beautiful to contemplate as you go for a stroll. Highlights include Cook's Cottage and the Conservatory.

This garden's main walks were laid out in the shape of the union jack. There are several small fountains and sites. Lots of jogging, dog walking, work outs going on. Close in. Free tram to Exhibition, and then a short walk.

You need time to see everything in this garden area. I love to wander around it and sit on the grass and enjoy a take away coffee from the Epworth Hospital. The cafe is closed in the garden. The dog loves to walk around here...More

This really is a wasn't place to stroll around and relax when visiting Melbourne. Captain Cook's cottage is a reminder of our early European history Well worth a visit and spending an hour or so .
