Captain Cook's Cottage is a national treasure. It must be the oldest building in Australia by technicality.

The building was fully transported from the mother country to melbourne and rebuilt brick by brick from the ground up.

The cottage is set inside Victoria Park, not far from the MCG or parliament house.

To enter the cottage the National Trust charges a small fee.

Address: Victoria Park
Directions: take a train towards the MCG. It is in the park just after Treasury Gardens
