Anzac Cottage.

Anzac Cottage, 38 Kalgoorlie Street in Mount Hawthorn, was built in one day on 12 February 1916, by the local community.

It was constructed as a home for a returned wounded soldier and his family, and as a memorial for those who lost their lives in the tragic Gallipoli landing.

This weekend the cottage will host a free open day, dedicated to the animals that supported, comforted and aided our servicemen and women during war.

The event runs from 1pm until 4pm, with talks at 1:30pm and 2:45pm to share stories about these animals.
