Located in West Gosford just of the Central Coast Highway, a little cottage well worth taking a look at, part of our history, well presented & the volunteers will answer any questions, a little gem tucked away in suburbia, very interesting especially for children.

This is a hidden gem on the Central Coast. Apparently open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Staffed by volunteers and I think well worth the $5.00 entry fee. The convict cottage where Henry Kendall stayed is just amazing and we're lucky it has survived.
