The Fitzroy Gardens are one of Melbourne’s major attractions and are visited by over 2 million local, interstate and international visitors each year.

Fitzroy Gardens was named after Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy (1796-1858), Governor of New South Wales (1846-1851) and Governor-General of the Australian Colonies (1851-1855).

There are a number of special attractions in the gardens including the Conservatory (which was opened in March 1930), Cooks’ Cottage (a memorial to Captain James Cook), the Fairies Tree (which is over 300 years old and a favourite amongst children) and a number of beautiful statues, fountains, structures and trees.
