The place

John Curtin with his wife, son & daughter outside house. Cottesloe, 1942. JCPML00617/65/3

As one of only three former Australian prime ministers’ homes that are in public ownership, the Curtin Family Home holds great significance.

The home comprises a house, a garden, and a backyard. In the context of its surroundings in Cottesloe and nearby Fremantle it is evidence of extended Curtin family members’ lives and times, and a record of suburban life as many ordinary Australian families knew it during the interwar years and afterwards.
