Built around 1857 by brothers Charles and Michael Calnan, Hope Cottage Museum offers a fascinating insight into the unique history and heritage of Kangaroo Island.

The site contains a complex of other buildings displaying farm machinery, domestic and communication equipment, sea and air travel, a shearing shed, blacksmith’s shop, 1950s’ garage, the complete Masonic Lodge Room from The Island Lodge No 54 and the original lantern room from Cape Willoughby – South Australia’s first lighthouse.
