Heysen - The Cedars

  • Disabled access

The Cedars is a gracious old home containing a fine collection of paintings and drawings by artist Sir Hans Heysen.

See Heysen's remarkable versatility in subject and medium. Enter Heysen's working studio, built in 1912 and used by this iconic painter until his death in 1968. See his painting materials and tools, sketches, notes and more. The Cedars's rambling cottage garden is part of the South Australian Open Garden. A walking trail is also featured on the 60 hectare property and directs visitors to favourite painting sites used by the artist.

The studio of Nora Heysen (Archibald prize winner and daughter of Hans) is also open for viewing and features continuous exhibitions of her work.

The Cedars is still owned by the Heysen family.

Guided tours of the house and studio daily at 11am, 1pm and 3pm from September to May and 11am and 2pm from June to August.
