Heide Museum of Modern Art

Surrounded by beautiful parklands and intriguing sculptures, this complex was formerly home to museum founders John and Sunday Reed. The Reeds emerged as patrons of the arts in the 1930s and 40s, and today the support for modern art continues in the museum, which has changing exhibitions in its three galleries. Sunday Reed’s original kitchen garden lives on and supplies produce to the new restaurant, Café Vue at Heide, operated by renowned chef Shannon Bennett of Vue de monde. 7 Templestowe Rd, Bulleen; (03) 9850 1500; open 10am–5pm Tues–Sun and public holidays; cafe (03) 9852 2346; open 10am–5pm Tues–Fri, 9am–5pm Sat and Sun; admission free to gardens and sculpture park.
