Hahndorf Things to Do: 19 reviews and 36 photos


Located in Heysen Road, just out of Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, is "The Cedars" the home of Sir Hans Heysen. He was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1877, and arrived in Australia 6 years later. He started painting when he was a boy, and settled in Hahndorf in 1908. This is where he lived for the rest of his life. He passed away in 1968. Its here where he painted the beautiful Gum Trees located near his home.

You can visit his garden and shop for FREE
To see his Studio and House, you take a guided tour, which is $8 and departs at 11, 1 and 3pm in Summer, 11 and 2pm in Winter.
