“Average site of historical interest.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2010

Cadman's cottage was built in 1816 as part of the Government dockyard to house the officer responsible for government boats, their operations, and crews. It is widely considered one of Sydney's oldest buildings and I believe the oldest surviving residential structure in the city.

As a tourist attraction it is a bit on the small side with fairly average displays. A small historical exhibition covering the history of the building with a couple archeological sites in between encompasses the main attraction for visitors.

Admission is free, so you can't really argue with that but this is best viewed in context of a tour of the surrounding area ('The Rocks') and is a bit standard as an independent tourist site.
