Dimbola was the home of the celebrated Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron.
It is now a Museum and Gallery dedicated to her life and work, which also showcases contemporary exhibitions from photographers around the globe.
Dimbola Museum and Galleries is also home to Julia’s Tearoom renowned for its high-quality locally-sourced food, tempting homemade cakes, and delicious cream teas. You can enjoy these in our cosy tearoom, once the salon of Julia Margaret Cameron and where she entertained guests, or in our pretty, sunny garden with views to Freshwater Bay and the sea.
Don't forget to visit our Gift Shop. It is open 10am-4pm Tuesday-Sunday, we sell a range of gifts, books, card and items relating to Julia Margaret Cameron.
