I have always admired Hans Heysen's paintings but to visit his lovely home and studio was a special treat. Nora Heysen's studio is also open to the public. The house contains many items of original furniture and paintings.

Very good guides to give an understanding of Hans Heysen's life. Staying at I Stay Precinct in Adelaide close to bus station and central markets is a good place to stay with swimming pool available. Friends collected us from here to drive to the Cedars.

The tour provides an opportunity to get some local history, meet some local people, and walk the countryside off-road. We enjoyed the half day we spent there, seeing the old house and walking the vast property.

It's quite a walk but a short taxi drive.. I'd suggest taking a taxi as it won't be too expensive and shame to miss it. The Handorf tourist office is on the main street too and they should be able to help you with a taxi.

Hi, There are 2 tours I think. One just to the studio, maybe need 30 minutes. I assume they still do a tour of the home, probably need 1.5 hrs. But it would be flexible.
