Norman Lindsay – Creswick

The central Victorian town of Creswick was the home of the Lindsay family from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Norman Lindsay was one of 10 children, many of whom also became artists.

The Lindsay family home no longer exists, but its location is marked by an obelisk. In honour of Norman Lindsay, the town has established a Magic Pudding playground for children.

Some of the paintings by Daryl and Percy Lindsay (Norman’s brothers) are on display at the Creswick Museum. The museum, which is in the former town hall, is open on weekends.
