Explore two exceptional Victorian Heritage Listed cottages.

Mott's Cottage - 5 Sackville Street, Port Fairy. Mott’s Cottage was constructed in three stages, the oldest section dates from 1850 or earlier and was built for local stonemason John Hooper. The building acquired its name in the twentieth century from Sarah Jane Mott, who owned it between 1918 and 1944. Across its long history it was used as a bakery and now survives to offer a glimpse into how the earliest European settlers into Victoria lived.
