Exhibits of the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum

The Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum is a stone cottage on a 17 hectares (42 acres) block of land which was originally owned by the Australian artist and writer Norman Lindsay. The property also contains some smaller buildings including two used as oil painting and etching studios.

The house and land were purchased by Lindsay and his wife, in 1913 and the estate was repaired and transformed over the years by Lindsay. He added classical colonnades, fountains, paths and sculptures. In the late 1950s, Lindsay began converting his house into a gallery to accommodate his paintings, statues, drawings, etchings, woodcuts and ship models.
