This is the 3rd location for the cottage, originally built in 1839 and owned by the first Lt Governor of Victoria. It is operated by the National Trust.
Only part of the building is original but the rest has been rebuilt using accurate illustrations and measurements from when it still stood. A lot of the original furniture has been painstakingly reinstated in the house which makes it particularly interesting. The only way to see inside is as part of a guided tour and we found the guide to be very knowledgeable about the house and the La Trobe family.
Because you can't hurry the guide, it takes about 45 minutes to see the place.
If you have the time and are in the area, worth a look.
