Bundanon

Bundanon is a large home near Nowra, New South Wales, oncethe home of the painter Arthur Boyd. It started as a single-storey weatherboard structure built circa 1840. In 1866, a two-storey sandstone house, made of locally quarried stone, was built immediately in front of the weatherboard house. The sandstone house features timber verandahs and is now listed on the Register of the National Estate. Bundanon was donated to the people of Australia in 1993 by Arthur Boyd, who believed that "you can't own a landscape" and wanted to share the place that inspired him so much with everyone, along with the adjoining property,which was owned by the Artist Sidney Nolan.
