Blundells Cottage

Explore and immerse yourself in the stories of the workers and their families who lived in Blundells Cottage, a historic Canberra landmark and one of the last remaining domestic buildings in the National Triangle.

Now close to Lake Burley Griffin, it was a considerable distance from the old Molonglo River but provided a home for workers on the Campbell's Duntroon estate, and later, for those who came to build the new Capital of Australia.
