Cooks' Cottage (East Melbourne)




Built in Yorkshire, England in 1755 by the parents of Captain James Cook, Cooks' Cottage was transported to Melbourne in crates and barrels, re-assembled and officially opened in Fitzroy Gardens, Victoria, in 1934.

Combining modern interpretations of Captain Cook’s life and adventures with centuries old relics and a vibrant, colourful English cottage garden, Cooks’ Cottage provides a unique insight into English family life in the 18th century.

  • Discover Melbourne's rich history and how Cooks' Cottage came to be one the city's great landmarks.
  • Learn all about Captain James Cook's life, his amazing voyages and his tragic death, in the Discovery Centre, including the legacy he left for future generations.
  • Experience what life was like in the eighteenth century, as you walk through this double-storey cottage and its traditional English cottage garden.
  • Listen to the sounds of the Cook family sitting down to a family meal and hear their excitement when their son, Captain James Cook returns from his latest voyage.
