"Dingley Dell Cottage remains as a memorial to Adam Lindsay Gordon for future generations, and a legacy to a great man - horseman, politician, poet, artist, lover of classical literature, and of life"


The historic Dingley Dell Cottage is one of South Australia's premier tourist attractions, famous as the former home of Adam Lindsay Gordon (1833-70).

Dingley Dell has been restored and refurbished as a museum, paying homage to the poet and bushman, as well as reflecting 19th century Australian lifestyle.  It contains many of Gordon's belongings and memorabilia.  The cottage grounds and surrounding bush that once inspired Gordon to write many of his verses, now offer picnic facilities and nature walks to visitors.

Located 467 km south east of Adelaide at Port MacDonnell, resident caretakers Allan and Jenny Childs welcome you to visit this iconic home.

Dingley Dell...where the spirit of Gordon lives on!
