Why is this interesting?

This worker’s cottage and Blundells are in contrast to other 18th century buildings that are part of the Canberra Tracks network. Duntroon House, Lanyon and Gungahlin Homestead are much grander structures. Mugga-Mugga was a shepherd’s outpost for Robert Campbell’s Duntroon estate. The early slab hut was demolished and the current stone cottage was built in the late 1850s. It has been continuously occupied from then until the 1980s.
