On a hill overlooking Adelaide is this wonderful 1930s mansion which belonged to two members of the Adelaide social set. The house is a delight to tour with its collection of art & sculpture, & the gardens are extensive & well manicured. I was fortunate enough to stumble upon an exhibition of Sir Arthur Streeton's paintings here recently which was an added bonus. There is a lovely café with pleasant seating & helpful staff together with a particularly inviting menu. A lovely place to visit.

Carrick Hill is a lovely stately old home full of many artefacts from a time gone by. It was fabulous to wander around and reflect on how life must have been back then for the other half. Stopped and had lunch in the cafe and both meals were absolutely fabulous and the services was exceptional.

We attended a guided tour of the property and it was worth the time. The guide was very informative and very willing to answer any questions.
The history of the house and the artwork were fantastic - not to mention the beautiful gardens!

We came in for a walk in to look at the grounds for a wedding venue. We loved the place and asked the front desk lady for somebody to show us around . The man who showed us around was very opinionated against marriage and emulated those opinions on myself and my fiance. He kept making innapropriate jokes about marriage was not appropriate at all! Aside from the man , the grounds were beautiful, however we will not be back here again.

I loved the old home and was lucky enough to have a guided tour of most of the place. I loved the beautiful gardens and was surprised by some of the artworks lol
