  • Great historical house. Provides an accurate glimpse of life in the early 1900 of a well known Australian painter Hans Heysen and his family. Highlights include the studio, the Ford model A, the garden, and the various landscape of interest that are reflected in many of his paintings.
  • Interesting historical tour. Would have liked a bit more time to view all the works. Tour guide very good
  • Very interesting to see this home which is in much need of restoration.Great selection of paintings and the guided tour was interesting. Outside Hahndorf on a minor road which means you need a car or taxi. Well worth a visit to see this wonderful painters property and enjoy the surroundings.
  • An interesting property with some real history behind it. The studio was fantastic to go through. The grounds could do with a bit of a revamp as the trail can be hard to follow at times. All in all a great place to stop in the hills
  • Fantastic experience to learn so much about Hans Heyden and his life at The Cedars. Our guide Janet was a font of knowledge and God fun to share the viewing of the house and studio. The Art Trail is definitely worth doing as well. Whether you love art, land or buildings this tour has something for everyone.
