Adelaide Hills boutique eco-tourism accommodation

The Hens Heysen Foundation is publicly seeking a partner for accommodation on property near Hahndorf. The site sits adjacent The Cedars - a well known cultural tourism attraction which is Sir Hans Haysen’s home - one of Australia’s most famous landscape painters and greatest artistic treasures. The Cedars is close to Hahndorf which is a major tourist attraction township in SA, known for its German heritage. The Cedars has $9m committed to by the Commonwealth Government for its redevelopment.
The site is beautifully positioned in the rolling Adelaide Hills and offers an incoming operator flexibility of imagination to construct a boutique tourism offering with luxury cabins in the woods, glamping facilities, or many other options for overnight stay for the 1,500,0000 tourist visits to Hahndorf annually.
Expressions of Interest are being sought from tourism operators to develop the adjoining block. The Cedars redevelopment is to be designed by leading architects Snohetta, will feature high quality kitchens and dining experiences.
