about the cedars

The Cedars was purchased by Hans Heysen in 1912, and he lived there with his wife Sallie, and their family of eight children.

Your visit to The Cedars may include touring both Hans Heysen’s studio – Australia’s oldest artist’s studio - and Nora Heysen’s studio, as well as the Heysen family home.

Some 200 original works of art can be seen in changing displays in the studios and the house.

All visitors are welcome to spend time in the charming garden that changes with the seasons, or to wander along the Artist’s Walk and discover some of Heysen’s favoured painting sites.

Allow at least two hours for your visit, but ideally, bring a picnic and spend the whole day on the property.

The Cedars is in the hands of the Hans Heysen Foundation. The proceeds from tour tickets and shop sales contribute directly to the management and maintenance of the house, studios and property.
