Come and join award-winning author/illustrator Mark Wilson in the Dromkeen Gallery at 1.00pm on the 23rd April 2022, as he shares his beautiful picture books, highlighting the significance that animals have played during wartime.
You will learn about 2 little dogs, Digger and the Afghanistan Pup, and also a very brave carrier pigeon called Flapper, who saved a troupe of soldiers on Manus Island during WW1. View some original illustrations from Mark’s books and learn to draw some of the animals. This is a free event. Books and prints will be available for purchase on the day.

Built-in 1889, Dromkeen was once the country estate of Judge Arthur Chomley and later became home to the world-famous Dromkeen Picture Book Art Collection.
Nestled in the Macedon Ranges in the tiny hamlet of Riddell’s Creek, Dromkeen is only 30 minutes drive from Melbourne Airport. This stately National Trust home has beautiful gardens with a range of Australian native and European plants, a gazebo and two resident peacocks.
Guests to Dromkeen are able to visit our Tea Room, browse in the galleries or wander around the beautiful autumn gardens which have trees more than 100 years old, some listed on the National Trust register.
