Murrays Cottage was a new addition to the Hill End Artist in Residence Program in 2003.
The cottage was the Hill End residence of prominent Australian artist Donald Friend (1947 - 1957) and Donald Murray (1947 - 1980s). The nineteenth century cottage has been refurbished with the assistance of a NSW Ministry for the Arts regional infrastructure grant. The building works were designed to maintain the significance of the building and its setting (as per the period of Friend) with a mood of simple living, outdoor orientation, while providing modern and safe amenities for artists.
Murrays Cottage is located on the corner of Beyers Avenue and Moores Lane.
