On Sunday the 25th of September 2022, you have the opportunity to be part of an exclusive guided tour of the impressive property of Sir Hans Heysen as well as enjoy a delicious high tea in this historic home. The tour includes visiting the studios of both the revered Australian artist and his daughter Nora. Designed by Hans himself, his studio is the oldest viewable artist studio in Australia. It has a huge window on one of the walls and all the furniture and art equipment are left just as they would have been.

During the tour, you will see numerous original works of art - drawings, watercolours and oil paintings - displayed around the studios and home. You will also discover the history and some interesting stories of these remarkable artists. Your high tea will consist of gourmet home-baked sweet treats and savoury bites accompanied by tea, coffee and sparkling wine.
