We last visited this property in 2014 but it was again on our list to revisit on our trip to Australia. The property is a pleasure to walk around knowing that the staircase and wood panelling and some furniture came from another historic home in the UK. You can imagine Chrusrmas and formal meals within the dining room which retained a family ambience. This was my favourite room. There is also an excellent cafe area with seating overlooking the formal gardens. Try the picnic platter with a pear cider. Lovely treat on a hot summers day.

We decided that it would be interesting to show off this little bit of England to a visitor from Thailand. Not only could we show off the fabulous views of Adelaide from the traditional English style garden but we could also include a visit to the house to view the transplanted oak paneling and staircase. We were also fortunate in the the current exhibition was Stretton...both paintings and sketches.
Iced coffee and Eggs Benedict satisfied empty tummies and the coffee was good. Service was friendly and helpful

The gardens, food at the cafe, the house and the tour were all wonderful. If I lived in Adelaide a picnic lunch in the gardens would be on my agenda often. The gardens are free, only the tour and food at the cafe take your money - your choice. Otherwise it can be a free day out

Carrick Hill is imbued with fascinating SA history, notable artworks, beautiful gardens and wonderful views to the sea. It is a lovely, relaxed spot for morning coffee or lunch with friends.

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.
