One of the most interesting things about the Fitzroy Gardens is that the paths are laid out in the same cross-combination formation as the union jack, which for the moment at least is on in the Australian flag.

Set aside as a reserve in 1848, the gardens are names for Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy, Governor of New South Wales (1846-1851) and Governor-General of the Australian Colonies (1851-1855). It was classified by the National Trust in 1974 and placed on the Victorian Heritage Register in 1999.
