  • 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.
  • It was fantastic. The guides were really good and had lots of stories about the Heysen family ,Hans and how they painted. There were lots of paintings, many hanging where they always did. It felt like the family had moved out last week.
  • A must to visit while in Adelaide, great piece of Australian history.
  • We can see and feel the real home, garden and studio of Hans, where he created so many brilliant artpieces. Very special experience to follow the guided tour.
  • Great place to visit. His story was interesting for earlier South Australia's history. Wide range of interests from early caravans, conservation of trees to painting accurate Australian trees for the first time.
