The Gardener’s Cottage in Victoria Park, Sydney, Australia.

Nine-hectare Victoria Park, located on the corner of City Road and Parramatta Road in Camperdown, was originally known as Grose Farm. The farm was chosen as the site for Australia’s first higher education institution, the University of Sydney, in 1855.

Thirty years later, the Gardener’s Lodge was one of a number of stone cottages constructed around the university grounds to house its employees.

An example of the Victorian Gothic Lodge style of architecture, the Gardener’s Lodge features original decorative stone detailing on its parapet, gables, windows, chimney and entrance porch.

The building was recently renovated & now accomodates a cafe with seating on the outside (out of site).
