Dingley Dell Conservation Park

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

If you enjoy Australian Poetry, a visit to Dingley Dell Conservation Park is a must. In this peaceful bushland setting lies the cottage of Adam Lindsay Gordon, one of Australia’s famous poets. An eccentric and talented character, Gordon lived at Dingley Dell from 1864 until 1867 where he indulged in his two great passions, horses and writing. For an insight into his colourful life, take a stroll through his cottage (now a museum) where you can see some of Gordon’s personal belongings and read his lyrical works.

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. From February 2020 group tours may be available by prior appointment. Please call or email National Parks and Wildlife Service to check for availability.
