Enjoy a visit to Hans Heysen's historic home, nestled among the majestic gum trees which featured in many of his paintings. The house stands on about 60 hectares of rugged Adelaide Hills terrain and nearby are the studios of Hans and his daughter Nora (herself a renowned artists, becoming the first female Archibald Prize winner).

Take a step back in time as you wander through the flower garden that was another inspiration for this famous Australian artist and see his studio which has largely remained undisturbed since his death in 1968. Also visit the studio used by his daughter, view paintings in the surroundings in which they were created, and see a Ford Model A and Hans Heysen's original caravan used during his painting expeditions to the Finders Ranges.

The Heysen family continues to maintain the home in which Hans lived from 1912 until his death in 1968. Build in the 18602 as a farm house originally called Blackwood, the Heysen Family called it The Cedars.
