Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / New South Wales / Blue Mountains / Faulconbridge / Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum
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.

An outstanding artistic treasure and one that simply has to be visited. The home and grounds are divine and the great thing is that one can take one's time exploring without the need for demented...

Beautiful location, with a lovely garden. Friendly staff but not a lot to see for what you pay for. The cafe next door was great, though.

Beautiful historic house and gardens. Loved the Magic Pudding puppets! The painting studio was an absolute delight.

Lovely house adorned with a selection of Lindsay’s watercolours (my favourites), oil paintings, etchings, ceramics and miniature ships. You can’t take photos inside. The tour is very informative and made me realise what an amazingly creative individual Lindsay was, who turned his hand to all sorts of arts and crafts, including some of the furniture inside the etching studio. Add the sculptures created in the sprawling garden and you begin to understand why the guide referred to him as a polymath. Perhaps the real revelation for me was the role played by his second wife, Rose. She understood the value of his work and applied entrepreneurial spirit which he implicitly trusted. And she became a master craftsman at etching, converting Lindsay’s plates into paper art form. The museum should however more readily advertise the times of these guided tours so that visits can coincide with the tours as they literally add a lot more colour to the life and art of the Lindsays. Also, if you have young children, there is a small section dedicated to the Magic Pudding but it is not a focus of the exhibition.
Such a beautiful gallery and gardens... Always a joy to visit, tour guide was great and Devonshire tea in the Cafe is a must 👌
Loved the gallery & grounds. The cafe 's ambience was nice . However cafe was too pricey , had tea & scones the teapot contained hot water as staff had not put tea in it! When told of this they brought pot back & still was flavourless, sad to say a teabag would have been better! Was charged over $30 for 2 teas x 2scones by 2 people. Would not recommend the cafe .
Gallery, Gardens, and tour guide were excellent and overall the day out was very enjoyable and informative. The on site Cafe was however very disappointing. Coffee was very average and served in paper cups. We’re unable to cater for a small sized group and then we’re grumpy about eating a small snack on the bench outside. Suggest you take your own food and drink and enjoy a picnic in the gardens well away from the unwelcoming cafe.
If you haven't been to Norman Lindsay Gallery you have been missing out! Be sure to make this part of your Blue Mountains holiday. To see a glimpse of Norman and Rose's fabulous bohemian lifestyle, his studio and the etching studio is very, very special. Be sure to get a guided tour too.
