Cadmans Cottage, Sydney

Dating back to 1816, Cadmans Cottage is one of the oldest residential buildings in Sydney.

Dating back to 1816, Cadmans Cottage is one of the oldest residential buildings in Sydney. Located on The Rocks, it was initially right on the waterfront which is now 100 metres away due to the Circular Quay. A rare example of an early official colonial building, the 2-storey sandstone cottage was originally used by government coxswains and their crews, then variously as a water transport headquarters, a sailors' home, and water police station.
