Blundells Cottage

This small stone cottage on the northern shore of Lake Burley Griffin was built about 1860 as a home for Duntroon Estate workers. The cottage is now a fascinating hands-on museum and a memorial to the pioneers of the limestone plains.

Over time the national capital has grown around Blundells Cottage, replacing the paddocks sitting alongside the Molonglo River with government buildings and suburbs.

Get a unique insight into life on a nineteenth century agricultural estate, with a large collection of everyday household items. Take a virtual tour of Blundells Cottage at their web site.
