What people are saying:

Cooks' Cottage, previously known as Captain Cook's Cottage, is located in the Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne, Australia.The cottage was constructed in 1755 in the English village of Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, by the parents of Captain James Cook, James and Grace Cook, and was brought to Melbourne in 1934 by Sir Russell Grimwade.It is a point of conjecture among historians whether James Cook, the famous navigator, ever lived in the house, but almost certainly he visited his parents at the house.

Additional Information

Introduction

To commemorate the discoverers of Australia: the famous British navigator James Cook, the Australian industrialist Sir Russell bought Captain Cook's parents in the former residence of Yorkshire, England, as a gift to the Melbourne citizens. Captain Cook’s Cabin is therefore the only building in Melbourne that was truly built in the 18th century. In fact, Captain Cook has been exploring the unknown land for the rest of his life, and he probably never stepped in this former residence in Yorkshire.
