Heide Museum of Modern Art
Lonely Planet review for Heide Museum of Modern Art
Heide Museum of Modern Art is on the site of the former home of John and Sunday Reed, under whose patronage the likes of Sidney Nolan, John Perceval and Albert Tucker created a new movement in the Australian art world. Set in a sprawling, riverside park, Heide has an impressive collection and exceptional temporary exhibits. The museum is signposted off the Eastern Fwy. Otherwise, take an Eltham train to Heidelberg station, and catch National Bus 291 to the corner of Manningham and Templestowe Rds, and walk from there.
