Set in the idyllic bush setting of Dingley Dell Conservation Park is the former home of one of Australia’s famous poets.

The eccentric and talented Adam Lindsay Gordon lived at Dingley Dell from 1864 until 1867. It was during his stay that his first poem was published outside of a newspaper or magazine. Success continued, with the number of his published works increasing between 1865 and 1867.

Dingley Dell cottage remains preserved as a reminder of its former resident. Displays around the grounds depict Adam Lindsay Gordon’s life and works, as well as the history of the cottage.
The Dingley Dell Cottage Museum is currently not open for daily tours. The surrounding conservation park remains accessible and is free for you to enjoy.
