Melbourne is famous for its picturesque parks and gardens and is renowned as Australia’s garden city. Victoria too is hailed as the Garden State. It was in Melbourne’s early development that Governor Charles La Trobe set aside parklands for people to enjoy the beauty of outdoor gardens. Land was reserved for the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens in 1848, and Captain Cook’s Cottage as well as over 1,000 trees including an avenue of 250 Dutch and English Elms can be found here.
