CADMAN’S COTTAGE

This is one of the oldest surviving buildings of early Sydney, having been built in 1816. It was originally used by government boat pilots and their crews.

Built on the shoreline of Sydney Cove in the area known as The Rocks it is now 100 metres away from the harbour front.  This is a result of reclamation of the mudflats during the building of the Quay between 1837 and 1855 when convict labour created a sandstone seawall to stabilise the new shoreline.
