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.

Tours of the cottage are available 10am to 4 pm every day (except July, August, Anzac Day and Christmas day). Group tours are available by prior arrangement. Check the website for further details.
