Old Government Cottage
The building known as Old Government Cottage is a rare, intact example, of an early Bathurst home. This historic building is located at 16 Stanley Street on the western side of the Macquarie River in the area of the old Government settlement. The building was re-opened after its recent repair and refurbishment in July 2012. This was the first major work on the building since the mid 1960s.
