This little stone cottage is a reminder of what existed here before the National Capital was even conceived. Built around 1860, the Cottage was originally part of the Campbell family’s 32 000 acre Duntroon estate and home to families of farm workers. In the 1940s and 1950s the Cottage became home to a series of tenants attracted to Canberra by the building boom.
