King Cottage is a great place for older people o revive memories of past and great for younger people to see how we lived. Has a lot to see and contains a lot of bunbury history. Well worth a visit by all ages

The volunteers know a lot about the place/history and are very happy to show you the house/furniture/equipment and photos on display. A visit is recommended if you are in Bunbury
