Located on the corner of Arthur Street and Church Street Penola, the Adam Lindsay Gordon bust is a bronze replica of the marble bust of Gordon in Poets Corner, Westminster Abbey, London.

The bust honours the Australian poet and Penola, the place he called home for 14 years.

Adam Lindsay Gordon was the author of the poetry collections Sea Spray and Smoke Drift (1867) and Bush Ballads and Galloping Rhymes (1870). He is the only Australian poet honoured with a bust in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey.

In 2019 two smaller busts celebrating two other poets, John Shaw Neilson (born in Penola) and William Ogilvie were added.
