Stirk Cottage was built in 1881 by Frederick and Elizabeth Stirk. The Stirks took up a 10 acre property in the district known as Gooseberry Hill, this area later became the Kalamunda townsite. The cottage is made of wattle and daub using materials found
on the property - jarrah saplings for corner posts and mud carted and mixed by Elizabeth. Charles Brooks took over the cottage in 1896 and established Kalamunda's first shop in a barn alongside.
The area has since been developed into a park, named Stirk Park after these enterprising settlers.
