Community Cottage

Former Clinic building, now community cottage.Former Clinic building, now community cottage.

The Taroona Community Cottage (formerly the Taroona Child Health Clinic) is available for hire.

The cottage is free for local Taroona Community groups for their meetings, as long as these are open to the general community, and there is a small charge for other users.
The cottage is suitable for small groups, and is particularly popular for children's birthday parties as it is situated in the fenced area which includes the Taroona Park Playground.

The cottage has 3 small rooms, chairs, tables and kitchen sink, microwave and small fridge.

There is also a single toilet and handbasin. There is a microwave but no electric oven. There is a small number of mugs, plates, cutlery and bowls. There are three  tables, nine chairs and bench seats along walls in the middle room. .

Cottage hire is $15 per session.


  • The playground is a public playground for everyone and cannot be booked for exclusive use.
  • The electric BBQ outside the hall is operated from within the Hall and is therefore not available with cottage hire.
