Members of Gerringong and District Historical Society, Carol and Jack Flanagan have graciously offered to
open their home, the Station Master’s Cottage, at 16 Belinda Street, Gerringong, on Sunday 22 March
from 1 to 4 pm.
The cottage is typical of those built on the southern train line when it was extended through Gerringong
to Bomaderry in 1893 and provided a vital link with the nearby butter factory, then Dairy Co-op, which had
been established in 1888.
With architect John Murray, the Flanagans have restored and extended the house, ensuring the historical
features have been faithfully kept, while sensitively adapting the home to modern living. John Murray will be
available on the day to talk about the house and its restoration, and will hold information sessions at 1.30,
2.30, and 3.30 pm in the back room. Visitors can however walk through the cottage at any time during the
