Review of The Cedars

The Cedars
Ranked #2 of 35 things to do in Hahndorf
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We really enjoyed the two studios. We were lucky to catch the Nora Heysen Centenary showing of her many paintings and sketches.
We loved the Hans Heysen studio also again some really fabulous artworks on show.
The walk through the property is informative and very pleasant to do. We did not have time to do a guided tour through the house but we will certainly be returning to do that.

We visited the Cedars not really knowing anything about what we were going to see. We were so pleasantly surprised at how interesting it was. I looked at his paintings... And then I went for a walk around the grounds and looked at 'his' trees. And came back with a brand new appreciation of what he was painting. Such beauty! The staff were very helpful and gave us lots of interesting information and filled in all the gaps for us.
Well worth a visit.

I have here so many times and take all overseas and interstate visitors as this is just such a special place. The guided talks are always so interesting and to experience the feeling of Hans Heysen in his studio or painting in the beautiful grounds is surreal. It gives one such a feeling of having been there with him whilst at work. The house too is very personal with many anecdotes and don't forget his daughter Norah's work too! The walk through the trees conveys such a sensation of the bush and all of its natural beauty.

No visit to the Adelaide Hills town of Hahndorf should be without a tour of the Cedars, home of the great SA artist Hans Heysen. Guided tours are available and the guide we encountered was excellent. It is a fascinating and interesting part of the art history of this state and is well worth the visit.

I always loved Australian Gum Trees, but after having seen Hans Heysens work, I have developed a much deeper love, understanding of the nature of the bush lands surrounding Verdun/Hahndorf.
