The Artists Trail

The Artists Trail
In the late 1880’s and 1890’s, Heidelberg and Eaglemont were sites of great significance, and this historic art trail recognizes twelve of the works painted in this vicinity.

The Heidelberg School Artists Trail extends over 40 kms through parks, villages and designated bike/walking paths in the municipalities of Banyule and Manningham and the Shires of Nillumbik and Yarra Ranges. It includes a total of 57 colour, interpretative signs which follow the history of internationally recognised artists including Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts and Louis Buvelot.

The signs include reproductions of some of the artists most famous pieces and a description of the works, located in or near where the artists painted or lived. This allows visitors to experience not only how the artists interpreted the landscape, but also how the landscape may have changed since the artworks were produced.

The Trail is ideal for art lovers, walkers, school groups – and anyone who is interested in our region’s rich cultural heritage.

 

Our involvement

The Society has supported community efforts to re-establish the rich heritage and traditions of the “Heidelberg School of Painters” by arranging tours in the 1990s of the sites around the Eaglemont and Heidelberg area and whose members played their part in the development of the Artists’ trail in 1997 by Andrew McKenzie (then a Councillor) and Dennis Ward. The Heidelberg Artists Society contributes donations to charities through its sales of paintings at various venues.
