Mugga-Mugga's simple dwelling has been adapted and extended over time. Settlement on the site commenced in 1838 and its centerpiece is a simple cottage built for the head shepherd of Duntroon.

The small stone cottage has been conserved and furnished with household items that belonged to the Curley family who moved to Mugga-Mugga from Duntroon in 1913.

Mugga-Mugga offers a range of popular learning and community programs and unique opportunities for venue hire.
