Heide Museum of Modern Art combines contemporary art, architecture, gardens and coffee into what is a lovely way to while away your afternoon.

Heide began 80 years ago when John and Sunday Reed bought a piece of land on Melbourne’s outskirts and renovated an old farmhouse, turning it and its surroundings into a gathering place for Australia’s budding arts and culture community. Many of the creatives they helped nurture went on to become some of the nation’s most well-respected artists. Presenting a mix of modern and contemporary Australian art and international contemporary art, Heide Museum of Modern Art is as much about the history, landscape and architecture as it is about the art. With 15 acres of parkland stretching from the museum to the Yarra River Bank, one can explore sculpture parks, kitchen gardens, conservation zones and the on-site Café Vue, run by acclaimed Melbourne chef Shannon Bennet.
