Reviews about Cook's Cottage

徐团

5/5
Reviewed on 30 Nov 2017

Captain Cook's cabin is located in Fitzroy Park in downtown Melbourne. It's a real cabin. It's simple, simple, even rough, with sloping roofs, tiled walls and stone walls. Dark Brown reflects ancient vicissitudes. James Cook was born in this cottage in Yorkshire, England, in 1728. When Melbourne celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1934, Sir Russell, a well-known Australian industrialist, paid 800 pounds to buy Captain Cook's former residence in Britain as a gift to Melbourne citizens. The former residence was carefully dismantled and each building material was numbered and packed in 253 boxes with a total weight of 150 tons. It was transported from Britain to Melbourne by sea and then assembled as it was. Captain Cook is known as the founding father of Australia. The visitors here are local residents and tourists. Captain Cook's cabin needs tickets. The entrance staff politely thanked us. The cabin and interior furnishings are very simple.
