Stoddart Cottage, a beautifully restored 19th century cottage in Diamond Harbour, is open to the public.
Permanent repair work has been completed, with an opening celebration on 19 April 2017.
Built by Mark Stoddart around 1860, Stodddart's Cottage at 1 Waipapa Avenue was the birthplace and childhood home of renowned 19th century botanic artist Margaret Stoddart and her siblings.
In the late 1980s a group of locals painstakingly restored the cottage. It is now an Historic Places Trust Category One listed building and is the oldest standing building in Diamond Harbour.
Now a popular tourist attraction, the Council has set aside funding to repair and strengthening the cottage as part of its $40 million commitment on 4 September 2014 to fast-track the repair and rebuild of community facilities.
