Anti-Australia Day vandals target Cooks’ Cottage in Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne

Securty guards were scheduled to patrol Cooks’ Cottage this weekend before anti-Australia Day activists vandalised the historic landmark last night.

The vandals sprayed inflammatory messages on the former home of Captain James Cook’s parents, located in Fitzroy Gardens.

One said “26th Jan Australia’s shame” while the other said “F@#$ Aus Day”.

People walking through Fitzroy Gardens stopped to look at the graffiti this morning, with the building also sprayed with fluorescent green and orange paint.

A window was also broken in what Lord Mayor Robert Doyle described as a “senseless act of vandalism against one of the icons of our city”.

I do hope the vandals, likely leftist idiots, are planning to live elsewhere than this shameful land.
