Iconic Cooks' Cottage in Melbourne vandalised

Iconic Cooks' Cottage in Melbourne vandalised

The historic Cooks’ Cottage on the outskirts of Melbourne’s CBD has been vandalised in the early hours of the morning, with anti-Australian slogans.

The building in Fitzroy Gardens has been graffitied with slogans including “26th January – Australia’s shame”.

Vandals have sprayed fluorescent pain across the building, and smashed a window.

Detective Senior Constable Scott Gray says police are reviewing security footage, and have narrowed the time of the incident down to between 2:30am and 2:40am.

It is the third time the building has been vandalised in the 12 months – it was also graffitied in the days following Australia Day last year.
