Captain Cook (1974) | Marc Clark
Fitzroy Gardens, itself a whimsical scene scape of green trees – and perfect selfie backdrops – also plays host to a dashing life-size sculpture of ‘Captain Cook’. Tall, lean, and unmistakably green, this sculpture of the first British man to map the east coast of Australia provides a poignant testament to the bravery of early explorers, complete with a smashing set of bronze underclothes. From here, Cook devotees will enjoy wandering over to his cottage, which was transplanted in full from the original site in Yorkshire.
