Dromkeen Homestead picture book discovery


Dromkeen Homestead was built in 1889 and is nestled in the foothills of the Macedon Ranges. It is a National Trust home built by Judge Arthur Chomley, an Irish immigrant who became the Chief Justice in Victoria. Today the homestead has a tearoom, convention centre and gallery which displays many exhibitions from contemporary Australian children’s books. Currently there is an exhibition by award winning author/illustrator Mark Wilson, titled ‘Stories of Life, History and Nature told through the picture books of Mark Wilson’. Also on show are various works from other illustrators such as Terry Denton (Treehouse Books) and Anna Walker, among other significant Australian children’s book illustrators. A gift shop for that last minute gift concludes this wonderful day.
