Hi.im currently about to travel to S.A from Melbourne on a 2 week camping 4x4 trip with my wife , we are interested in doing this tour but would like to know how long the tour takes from star to finish as we would like o be able to fit it into our itinerary , thanks for any help
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.
We did the house and studio tour at 11am and it took 1 hour. We spent a total of 2 hours at the cedars. We did the leasurely walk around the grounds.
I think there are 3 tours a day if I remember correctly.
If you are going to visit Hahndorf you should give yourself a day
The town is the oldest German town in Australia and worth a visit - lots of eateries, wineries and interesting shops - The Cedars is on the Adelaide side of Hahndorf - Hahndorf is south of Mt Barker on the South Eastern Freeway
The whole of the Adelaide Hills is a perfect place to spend at least 3 days going to the wineries - Stay at The Resort, Hahndorf - fantastic facilities and only a stone's throw from The Cedars (Hans Heysen's home) - Enjoy
If you want to walk in and look and walk out. Approximately 30 to 60 minutes. But, if you want to explore and read and absorb the artist and his work. You can while away half to a full day in the sunshine and a picnic in the garden. Take the time to rest and breathe. Simples.
