James Cooks' Cottage

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

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. Captain James Cook (7 November 1728[NB 1] – 14 February 1779) was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy. Cook made detailed maps of Newfoundland prior to making three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, during which he achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand.
