This brick and tile Cottage was built in one day in 1916 entirely by the community with donations of building materials, money, labour, skills and food to sustain the workers, The Cottage was built as a memorial to those who lost their lives at the Gallipoli landing on April 25, 1915 and as a home for a returned wounded soldier who fought in that conflict. The Cottage is now set up as a museum that tells the story of its origins and of the subsequent history of the Cottage through displays, audio interpretation and guided tours. There will also be a poppy making workshop for children throughout the Open House opening.
