Purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie buys new home in Naremburn
Purple Wiggle Lachlan “Lachy” Gillespie has bought back on the north shore market, just weeks after his ex did so too. The children’s entertainer spent $1.92 million on a fully renovated semi in Naremburn.
The 1915 home, which last traded at $1,335,000 in 2013, has two bedrooms and adjoining dining and kitchen, which flow to the sunroom.

Gillespie had been out of the market since 2017 when he and former partner, Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins, sold their Wollstonecraft apartment for $2.05 million before their split became public. They had paid $1,395,000 for the three-bedroom apartment in the 1896 converted English-style manor Ben Ledi in 2014.
Watkins bought back into the market recently, settling on a $1.3 million, three-bedroom East Ryde home.
The pair have remained good friends as they continue to tour with The Wiggles.
They head to the US for their first show in Seattle next weekend, finishing their tour in Canada in October.
The tour comes on the back of the release of a new album, Party Time, the Wiggles’ 53rd studio album and the 18th with the current line-up of Gillespie, Watkins, Simon Pryce, and original band member Anthony Field.
Gillespie took the purple skivvy in 2013, replacing “Wake Up” Jeff Fatt, but had joined The Wiggles in 2009, touring with the Dorothy The Dinosaur’s Travelling Show as Captain Feathersword. He then became a Wiggly Dancer and Wags the Dog during the group’s regular tour.
