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.

Didn't realise the house of William Dobell was here, found it on our way up the Coast. Just check the visiting hours first because we got there 10.30am but it didn't open till 1pm.
