"In the earlier stages of the committee's operations, the cottages were built on Saturday afternoons and Sundays by voluntary labour, but owing to the numerous applications that were received by the committee for cottages it was decided to expedite the work by employing labour and accordingly a number of discharged soldiers were engaged to carry out the work".
Where are the Other Cottages?
Come and find out more about the 'Ugly Men' and explore these unique, exciting, and often untold stories from our ANZAC tradition. There may be a cottage near you.
Entry is Free and includes the talk and viewing of the ANZAC Cottage. Anne will be there for the whole time (pre and post talk) and is happy to speak to people about the Cottage stories and answer any questions you may have. For a gold coin donation, enjoy afternoon tea as you discover how "mateship" extended beyond the front line to the home front.
ANZAC Cottage is open to the public on the first Sunday of each month from 1.00pm to 4.00pm, offering free entry and afternoon tea for a gold coin donation. All are welcome to attend and learn more about its unique history.
