Adam Lindsay Gordon, the famed poet and horseman, owned this small colonial cottage from 1864. It was given to the local council by Maggie, his wife, in about 1873.
The cottage has been restored to provide visitors with a fascinating glimpse of life in the 1860s. Gordon's personal belongings, and other mementos of this era, form part of the period collection. Dingley Dell was the first house on South Australia's Heritage Register, registered in 1922. It was built in 1862 and purchased by Adam Lindsay Gordon in 1864 for £150.
