Acacia Cottage and Huia Lodge stand opposite each other in Cornwall Park near one end of the Olive Grove Road. Acacia Cottage was built in Shortland Street in the city in 1841 and is reputed to be the oldest wooden house in Auckland. It is a fine example of how the earliest little settler cottages were built and furnished. Huia Lodge was built between 1901-3. It is a delightful and cosy example of an early twentieth century timber lined home. It now functions as the Cornwall Park Visitors Information Center. The lodge opens daily at 7 a.m.
