  • A truly amazing place, worthwhile visiting. His and Nora's studios are insightful, and complete with many original works. The trust uses the income wisely, not only buying back much of the Heysen's works for display, but keeping the huge property pristine.
  • Sue was very informative and the Whole venue. Studio and house are amazing. A must see in the Adelaide hills and SA seriously beautiful
  • Well worth a visit. Heysen materials are well presented and interesting. Lovely gardens and bush land with abundant wildlife.
  • Interesting place and inspiring to know the life and passion of two artists (Father and Daughter) I enjoyed exploring the garden and seeing their amazing pieces of arts at their studios. Great history and the staff are friendly and wonderful. I had a well-spent morning 😊 so worth a visit. Thank you.
  • Brilliant place. Take the artist's walk around the property and visit his studio and that of Hans' daughter. So evocative.
