Our Garden Café and Op Shop is now open!
With the Cottage relocating to a quieter address, 25 Davey Street has been transformed into a funky op shop and garden cafe.
Open Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 2.30pm for preloved clothes and bric-a-brac, top coffee from Five Senses and cakes from Cookies and More.
This venture will support the charitable work of WA Mums Cottage, so please come and visit and enjoy a yummy treat as you browse in our funky op shop. All enquiries to 9595 1670.
PLUS – our regular activities at the cottage are now back! Check out our calendar for all the details.
We are always in need of volunteers for both the Garden Cafe Op Shop and the Cottage – if you can help please get in touch!
Welcome to WA Mums Cottage…
Guests are invited to drop in whenever there is a need for a cuppa, friendly chat and some company. WA Mums Cottage is a place of respite from whatever challenges they face in their lives. A place of renewal and of resource.
The cottage is not a residential refuge – however, we are able to refer to refuges in Mandurah, Perth, Rockingham or Bunbury.
Children are welcome at the cottage with their parent or guardian. There is a beautiful garden with play equipment and toys. A room is also available for breastfeeding, changing nappies and for mothers to have a break.
Volunteers and speakers needed
If you would like to volunteer to help out at Mums Cottage, or to be a speaker or hold a workshop, please get in touch.
Thanks for your support…
To everyone who has supported the concept of WA Mums Cottage from the beginning and in thanksgiving for all they have contributed!!
You have made a huge difference to the lives of women and families in the Mandurah community and I thank you for it. We have been recognised at the Australia Day honours with a nomination in the the group category.
This recognition is much appreciated as is the need that is being fulfilled.
