21 Government Cottage at Port Arthur, Australia

Next to The Church and at the head of the gardens is the brick shell of the Government Cottage. The quaint structure was built on an elevated platform in 1853. This abode was the temporary residence for visiting government officials, especially the head of the convict department (Comptroller General). Government Cottage has been in ruins since it was destroyed in 1895 by a fire.
