Heide Museum of Modern Art (Bulleen)




Heide Museum of Modern Art offers an inspiring, educational and thought-provoking experience of modern and contemporary art, architecture and landscape.

Café Vue at Heide offers a diverse range of delicious and affordable meals. The 'Heide Garden Menu Du Jour’ changes monthly, featuring fresh produce from Sunday Reed's original Kitchen Gardens. Café Vue at Heide is open during museum hours and for dinner on some evenings.

Opening Hours:


Open daily 10am-5pm. Closed Mondays.

Cost:


Admission Costs
Entry fee applies for those aged over 11 to the Exhibitions area but the gardens and sculpture park are free.

Review:


The outside garden area with large sculptures or the café are likely to appeal to kids the most (unless they are modern art aficionados). The large area dotted with sculptures is free to roam about but the number of sculptures is quite limited. There is a nice little stroll from sculpture to sculpture. A track leads down to the bank of the Yarra River. There are shaded seats scattered about in case the kids become tired from all the sculpture hunting.

5. A Native Rockery Garden
Heide Museum of Modern Art Outdoor Sculpture

By Fiona Hall (2009)
Various native plant species.

In addition to the sculptural objects and installations for which she is acclaimed, Fiona Hall has made some temporary and permanent gardens which reflect her interest in botany and its evolutionary, social and political histories. Environmental fragilities and our increasingly fractured relationship with the natural world are concerns which underpin much of her work.

In this rookery, Fiona Hall acknowledges John and Sunday Reed's commitment from the early 1960s to plant only native species on the property. Hall researched the Reeds' library and considered their interests in the work of influential historical gardeners such as Edna Walling, and international figures Eleanour Sinclair Rohde, Vita Sackville-West and Gertrude Jekyll. A feature of the garden is the experimental espalier across the façade of three Silver Princess trees (Eucalyptus caesia).

Fiona Hall's garden is the second artist's garden commissioned by Heide, the first being the now well established Karakarook's Garden (2005-06) by Lauren Berkowitz which is located near the Oak tree at the back of Heide I.
