Calala Cottage

Choose your Adventure

Built by Tamworth’s first mayor Philip Gidley King in 1875, Calala Cottage is furnished mainly from the late Victorian era. 

The museum displays items from early Aboriginal artefacts to the establishment of Tamworth as a city. 

Bequests from notable local families include clothing, portraits, photographs, furnishings and machinery. 

The shepherd’s hut, built about 1840, is Tamworth’s oldest surviving building.
