Ocean Reef Road, Wanneroo, Perth
Cockman House is the oldest surviving residence in the Wanneroo district, having been built by James Cockman in 1860. Having arrived in the Swan River Colony during its first year of European settlement, he settled with his wife Mary-Ann, and their seven children in Wanneroo in the early 1850s.
In Cockman House there are about 300 items with emphasis on the Cockman family. Their early life was similar to so many pioneering families from England and the sense of family is very strong in this house. Some excellent pieces of early Victorian and Australian colonial furniture can be enjoyed including campaign chest.
