What a very beautiful place to visit. The grounds are so lovely and the Gallery was so inspirational and awesome. I have a friend coming from Canada and this will definitely be on our list of places to see. Congratulations to the staff that keep it so lovely.

My favourite "HumanPlace" in the Blue Mountains Come here at least once a year, was the last place of happiness I went to with my Dad in back in 1985,every time I come back I still see something I`ve never seen before In one of Norman Lindsay`s works.
 
Frances Winters wrote about Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum on 16-Sep-2009:
This is a fantastic gallery and garden. There are many objects in the house as well as paintings and etchings. Norman customised furniture and made his own distinctive architraves. He made the most extraordinary ceramic pieces. The garden sculptures are extraordinary. Gradually all of them which were originally made in cement and chickenwire are being cast in bronze, but the original cement ones are still on view under cover to preserve them. This is a record of a multitalented life. Allow sufficient time to view this museum as you won`t want to leave.

I visited Norman`s gallery and museum in March of 06 and found it to be full of inspiration and rustic beauty. The walk down to the swimming pool was well worth the effort and the concrete sculptures are very entertaining. Thank you all for making my visit to Australia very informative and fun.

Norman Lindsay estate

A pleasant 1-hour drive from Sydney via M4 takes you to the magical Blue Mountains where life style is completely different from the one in Sydney, and the air is fresh and cool. There are many attractions in the Blue Mountains region. One of the most memorable ones is former estate of famous Australian Artist, Norman Lindsay, which has become his gallery and museum, at Faulconbridge, near Springwood.

The estate was bought in 1912 and was under (re)construction for most of the time, as Norman Lindsay modified existing and added new buildings and objects, such as the Etching Studio, a swimming pool, and sculptures (mainly of nudes).

The estate is set on a spacious land, surrounded by bush, and comprises several buildings (the main house, the painting studio, the etching studio), garden and an abandoned swimming pool. There are some original cement sculptures in the garden made by Norman Lindsay, as well as bronze replicas.

The main building has a gallery where virtually every aspect of Norman Lindsay creativity is represented. This includes erotic paintings in both watercolor and oil, etchings, drawings, books by Norman Lindsay, book illustrations, pencil drawings and models of ships. The building also features a shop where you can by some of Norman Lindsay works. Much of the interior of the main building has changed except for the kitchen, which still has original (very humble) furniture and appliances, such as fridges (including a very old one that didnít use electricity), stove, tiles, etc.

Two other buildings that are of great interest are the etching studio and the painting studio. These are open for inspection at set times. Although the interior has been changed, there are Norman Lindsay original etching tools, the etching press and some metal plates (the actual plates that were used for printing by Norman and Rose) on display at the etching studio.

The interior is left pretty much as it was with Norman Lindsay in the painting studio, including paints, brushes, some furniture and a couple of unfinished paintings.

You can browse among statues created by Norman Lindsay in the garden and nearby, and view the remains of the swimming pool. There is a bushwalk near the swimming pool.
