Henry Kendall Cottage at West Gosford was built circa 1840 by Peter Fagan, and was home for a time to famed Australian poet Henry Kendall.
The Cottage, Historical Museum (displaying fascinating items from the 1800s to mid-1900s), Slab Timber Shed (featuring an informative display of the bygone citrus fruit industry), Farm Machinery Shed and other outdoor exhibits are all situated on one hectare of peaceful parkland comprising mostly of Australian native trees and shrubs.
Cottage visitors, including tour groups are welcome to use the electric barbecue. The modest entry fee helps the all-volunteer Brisbane Water Historical Society to maintain the Cottage, the exhibits, and the grounds.
