About Lota

Get directions

Lota is 16 kilometres east of the CBD. 1859 waterfront land was subdivided from Lytton to Fig Tree Point and sales began in 1860. In 1863 Irish-born politician and squatter William Duckett White bought 293 acres and erected his two-storey Lota House, the heritage-listed structure now situated in Oceana Terrace opposite the Presbyterian church. Lota was apparently the name of the home in Ireland where White’s wife had been brought up.
