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.

Australians kept Captain Cook's home in Britain intact and moved it to Melbourne! It was James Cook who first discovered and explored the Australian continent. In honor of this explorer, Australian businessmen bought the former residence of Cook in Britain and gifted it to the city of Melbourne.
Captain Cooks meaning in Australia is like that of Columbus in the Americas. This guy is a madman in the Pacific Ocean. He is the discoverer of the Australian continent and belongs to the British Empire. The South Pacific has a series of islands lit by lights. How little or less has a relationship with the captain, and Cook finally hangs when he fights with the islanders in Hawaii.
The Captain Cook's Cabin in Melbourne's Fitzroy Park looks bland, two-story building, stone wall sloping tile this is not the former residence of Captain Cook in Australia, but Cook Captain's parents lived in the UK, and historians believe that Captain Cook should not have lived in this hut, but he should have been there when he visited his parents (well, it seems to be called "Captain Cook's father and mother." Cabin").
The captains house was relocated from the British to the cat. It was in 1934, when Melbournes 100th anniversary was established, the then Australian native, Sir Russell, paid 800 to buy the cottage. And dismantled and moved to Melbourne, Australia for permanent retention, which is considered an overall relocation. It takes AUD 6 to get inside the cabin. In Australia, this is not a place to visit if you need tickets. The interior of the cottage is actually quite awkward. It seems that the living standards of the British people in the 18th century are also average.
