The land on which the current Rose Cottage estate is situated was originally part of Andre Cunningham’s ‘Tuggeranong Station’, which was spelt Tuggranong earlier. The land on which Rose Cottage is situated formed the northeastern boundary of Hya Macquoid’s Waniassa until it was sold to Andrew Cunningham after Macquoid’s death in 1857.
Between 1875 and 1877, Richard James Harris (1830 – 1904) purchased Tuggeranong land from Cunningham. In 1878 Harris’s new 2,000-acre (809.37 ha) property became known as the Sweet Hills Estate. It is thought that Margaret Harris planted Kurrajong trees on the southeastern boundary (facing the former Monaro Highway, part of the old road is visible).

‘The Glasshouse’ function room includes seating for 60 to 80 people, standing room for more and your own private bar and bar attendant and private bathrooms.
‘The Glasshouse’ is a great room for any occasion. It can be “dressed to impress” for a wedding or is equally impressive for a rockin’ party or a more quiet subdued gathering. The room has a great ambience and a very cosy feel.
‘The Shed’ function room includes seating for up to 100 people, standing room for more and your own private bar and bar attendant and private bathrooms.
This is our most popular “party room” and some great nights have been had at 21sts, Engagements and Birthday parties as well as a large number of Christmas parties.
‘The Marquee’ function area includes seating for up to 100 people, standing room for more and can have your own private bar and bar attendant if required.
The ‘Marquee’ has two gas heaters, its own bar (if required) and a plasma TV. The ‘Marquee’ is located adjacent to both the kids sand pit and ‘Stones Corner’, which is a very popular summer sitting area under the big trees. This gives you the option of a covered area where you can still keep an eye on the kids and an outdoor adjacent area if the weather permits.
The Deck and Garden Spaces
Areas in the garden and on the deck are also hireable (starting at $250). If you are interested in this type of hire let me know and I can show you the options and the prices.
Hello Mark I just wanted to thank you and your staff for a fabulous evening on Saturday night in the Glasshouse. Matt, Sam and Joe were fabulous and really made the night great. Please pass on my thanks to the three of them. They are gems.Annamaria
Thanks to you and the team at Rose Cottage - in particular Matt, Ben and Rachelle for your help in hosting my son Nick's 21st birthday party in the Glasshouse last Saturday night. Everyone I talked with was impressed with the venue, the food and the service on the night. The fireplace was the most popular attraction. Also, my out of town family members appreciated the offer of the courtesy bus to the function and return to their accommodation.Mark D
Regards and best wishes for continued success.
Just wanted to let you know that last night was a huge success. Sam and Leah looked after us really well as did the serving staff, everyone loved the venue, the food was really good (you were right about the hotdogs!) and all had a great time.Maude
We’ll be back!!!
Our group of about 24 people had a good fun night at Rose Cottage last Thursday! Good food, good fire, great music, great atmosphere! Thanks very much for having a venue for us in Tuggeranong which is fun, with very reasonable menu prices, enough variety, open fire, and country atmosphere! We enjoyed the music of Dale Huddleston, and had fun dancing to the great choice of playlist. Everyone said it was a great night, and we will come again.Geraldine

Thanks once again.
We provide a free courtesy bus to help out with getting our patrons to Rose Cottage, particularly for functions & special events such as Weddings, and of course to get you home safely after a fun night.
The bus can be arranged to pick up and drop off groups of passengers who live in the local area – Tuggeranong, Jerrabomberra & Queanbeyan and we will happily run you into the City!
The Rose Cottage courtesy bus runs Friday and Saturday from 5pm and Sunday from 2pm.
