Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne
(4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Melbourne travel itinerary maker to add Fitzroy Gardens and other attractions to your Melbourne vacation plans.

  • What a beautiful park. If you walk past here every day, you should actually go in and check it out. Very quiet around dawn and dusk which is super tranquil.
  • Enjoyed spacious lawns, wonderful old trees, lovely gardens, ordered and more natural; preserved history, school children happily using and joining with others walking in the sunshine and savouring a pleasant coffee!
  • Fitzroy Gardens in East Melbourne, Australia takes on an ethereal quality in the light of a streetlamp, emanating deep hues of jade and emerald. It reminds me of somewhere magical out of a fairy-tale story, a small piece of tranquility in the middle of a bustling city. Named after Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy, the gardens receive over two million visitors each year.
  • Fitzroy Gardens are absolutely beautiful. The miniature village is really cute, and Cook's Cottage is nice too. There were lots of people there when I went, a very busy public place which feels very safe.
  • Fitzroy Gardens are beautiful and a nice place to enjoy a walk. Lose yourself in the nature.
