4.3/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Visit Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum to learn about the life and work of a prolific Australian artist who left his mark as a sculptor, writer, cartoonist, and scale modeler. The gallery/museum is a stone cottage sitting on 17 hectares (42 acres) originally purchased by Norman Lindsay in 1913. Several smaller buildings are also incorporated, including the two that Lindsay used as his oil painting and etching studios. Lindsay transformed the property over the years, adding classical colonnades, fountains, walking paths, and sculptures. The oil studio offers a rare insight into the artist’s personal creative space, which has been preserved exactly as it was when he died in 1969. Check online to make sure you don’t miss any special events, festivals, and workshops frequently offered here.

  • Don't know how..but hadn't heard of this guy before. Loved his stuff, especially the beautiful watecolours. Clearly multi-talented, this artist was prolific. The house & grounds were serene & lovely. Especially liked the peaceful inner courtyard, & the colonade draped with wisteria.
  • It's an amazing part of Australian history and Lindsay was a skilled visionary before his time (or maybe just some horny bugger). The house and grounds are great, his studio remains untouched. Good facilities and a lot of history to take in. Highly recommended.
  • Absolutely loved the Cafe situated in an almost secluded hideaway in the Gallery grounds. Wanting somewhere different, nice and peaceful for my dad's birthday, this place won hands down. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and the tranquil setting in the little courtyard, as well as exploring the beautiful grounds. The smoked chicken with cheese, avocado and cranberry and onion jam on Turkish bread served with a delcious salad was wonderful! We lingered for several hours until closing before heading up the Gallery and exploring the various sculptures and lovely gardens. We sadly didn't get to see all the gardens, so we will definitely have to go back - if not just for the Cafe again! Maybe we should take in breakfast there. Their Eggs Benedict sounds scrumptious!
  • Great piece of Australian history. Try the cafe and do the guided tour.
  • Great art and important to Australian history
