Listed on NSW State Heritage Register

Dobell House is now listed on the NSW State Heritage Register (SHR No. 01985). The curtilage, or boundary, of the listing is extended down to the water’s edge of Lake Macquarie to help preserve the views from the House which were an important part of Sir William Dobell’s body of work. The Statement of Significance associated with the listing includes “Dobell House is of state significance for its strong association with prominent Australian artist William Dobell and his work. [It was also] the center of the artist’s creative work, as he rarely painted away from his home. From 1950 until his death, virtually all his paintings were made here.”
