Whistlewood, an atmospheric 1870s weatherboard cottage in the rural hinterland at Shoreham overlooking Westernport Bay has been the home of the McCulloch family since 1951 when founding director of the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery director, critic and author the late Alan McCulloch AO and his wife actress Ella Bromley McCulloch ought the house on their return to Australia following an extensive overseas sojourn.  Over the last six decades Whistlewood has hosted some of the most famous names in the Australian and international arts world and features art, books, memorabilia and the studio of the late Alan McCulloch which he and Arthur Boyd designed and built in 1951. 

Today, Whistlewood is both a family home and gallery featuring Autralian Indigenous art from more than 30 of Australia's leading Indigenous arts centres - selected by its current owners - art writers and curators Susan McCulloch OAM and Emily McCulloch Childs.
