Gogerly's Cottage, Royal National Park, New South Wales

To showcase the oldest building in Sydney's Sutherland Shire, FNPW and our supporters provided $15,000 in funding to create information panels for visitors and to improve walking track access to the site at the surrounding Royal National Park. Ex-convict, Charles Gogerly lived in the cottage from 1853 which is where the name Gogerly's Cottage comes from. The house itself is believed to have been built prior to 1840. The cottage is an impressive display of early, sophisticated architecture and style for such a remote part of Sydney.
