Brief History

Built in the 1890s by a Mr Hoad for grazing. The house is substantial in size and so was used from the 1930's to 1950's by Forestry. One of the Forestry managers' name was Cotterill.

Subsequently it was used as a Post Office. It is now used by recreational groups, by appointment.

Construction

Cotterills is a substantial building about 14m square, with a large shed at the rear. Excellent public camping can be had around the building.

It is constructed with weatherboards and fibro, above a wooden floor and verandah. A pitched corrugated iron roof completes the building. Interesting door and window treatments abound.
