Adam Lindsay Gordon and Glenelg River Cruise

Adam Lindsay Gordon is Australia’s only poet to have a tomb in Westminster Abbey. He was a horseman and adventurer who for some time lived in a home called Dingley Dell south of Mt Gambier. The house is now a museum carefully maintained by guides and caretakers Allan and Jenny. We visited it yesterday. Above the Blue Lake at Mt Gambier is a monument to him, for at this spot he performed a brilliant manoeuvre on horseback, jumping the fence beside the lake, turning his horse and jumping back.







We then went down to the village of Nelson where we had a lunchtime cruise on the Glenelg River, passing by moonah melaleuca forest and abundant bird life.
