Patrick Taylor Cottage
Visit Western Australia’s oldest surviving dwelling.


Patrick Taylor Cottage is the oldest surviving dwelling in Western Australia, having been built in 1832 by the Morley Brothers.

It was purchased by Patrick Taylor in July 1834, and the eleven room wattle and daub cottage consists of an entry room, boxroom, parlour, nursery, bedroom, dining room, family room, sewing room, kitchen, laundry and side veranda.

The cottage now displays stunning artefacts from Albany’s history and beyond,  the building is also home to an outstanding display of mostly English porcelain and silverware, with some of the items dating back to the 1600s, as well as in-depth information on Patrick Taylor and early Albany residents, surrounded by a beautiful cottage garden next to the Duke Street Park. 

Due to the age of the building, and the time it was built, this attraction may pose challenges for wheelchair users, due to narrow doorways, small rooms and steps between rooms.
