Megalo have affordable accommodation options available to members visiting from interstate and overseas. Cargill’s cottage is an ACT heritage listed site located close to our studios. The dwelling was constructed in 1927 as housing for one of ten dairy farms in the area. The Cottage has two bedrooms available (one single and one double), lounge room, bathroom, kitchen and laundry and was restored and renovated by the ACT Government in 2012 to reflect its farmhouse heritage.
Artists can share the cottage with other artists visiting Canberra in a home-away-from-home situation. Linen is supplied. Cargill’s cottage is managed by a live-in caretaker. Accommodation is subject to availability.
