Step back in time.

Visited William Dobell's home in Wangi Wangi. It was like stepping back in time. The house is right on the water and you can feel his presence there with all the beautiful art works and stories. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and happy to spend time talking about Dobell and his life.

if you are in the area and interested in William Dobell take the time to check this out, you will find it most interesting, the stairs are a little bit rickety to go up and look at his art studio

Worth a visit

The home of Sir William Dobell is worth a visit if you are in Wangi Wangi. Nice to see where the master worked and see copies of his paintings.

The display in William Dobell's Cottage and studio is worth visiting. The lady in the cottage gave us a great insight into the life and works of one of our great artists. You can just imagine how peaceful this setting would have been like all those years ago.

Hidden Treasure

This is a hidden treasure and a must see if you are travelling through the area. Sir William Dobell was one of Australians greatest painters and to see where he fled to, following the Archibald prize debacle of the late 40's, is an insight into the man that wanted nothing but to paint and enjoy his life in simplistic anonymity. Some of his greatest painting were undertaken in the studio he build in what was once a daily cottage alongside the lake. If you love australian art, the do bell house is a must!

We took a group of 14 seniors out to Dobell House and Studio. Our 3 host were excellent in presenting the life and times of Sir William Dobell. It was a very interesting tour and would encourage other groups to visit the studio. Thank you.

Unobtrusive, like the painter

In the street next to the water's edge stands the wooden cottage of artist William Dobell, which was extended to include an airy downstairs large room. The place has extensive displays documenting his life, and shows off some of his extensive artwork. The rooms have been 'preserved' in the style and era of his lifetime. What was amazing is that his studio didn't overlook the water, but the street. Wondering through the exhibition, reading about his travels, his works one had a sense of his emotional self. Was a worthwhile visit.

Fantastic place to visit
ene. de 2017 • Familia
Dobell House is a fantastic place to visit for young and old especially those interested in art. The house remains the same as it was when Sir William Dobell lived there. It is interesting to see how he lived, where he worked and gives a representative of his life. Most of the furnishings, décor and his studio remains as he left it. Volunteer staff run the cottage and are very knowledgeable. There is a small entry fee but worth the cost. You are able to listen to interviews that Dobell made and there are posters depicting his life and career. You are able to purchase reproductions of his works but no originals paintings on site. The cottage is situated on Lake Macquarie and easy accessible from Sydney or Newcastle. Only open at certain times during the weekend 1-4pm. Not sure if open during public holidays.

A must see!

It was a great experience walking through Dobell's own home and studio, it feels like he's still here. The set up of the studio upstairs is as it was years ago, and feels very authentic walking through. It was a great pictorial representation of his life, as his works and legacy were placed around as you tour the house.
It's wonderful how the locals took the initiative to preserve this house, his works, and this great piece of Australian history.
Note: only open on Sunday afternoons
