This is a wonderful building set in gracious grounds with a superb view over Adelaide and the plains. The exhibitions are often very interesting and the history of the house is fascinating.

Carrick Hill has beautiful, expansive gardens which are the ideal location for a walk or a picnic. The house is in excellent condition and offers an interesting view into the life of its wealthy owners with their original furniture and some personal possessions. The staircase is simply huge!

I'd recommend this to any visitors to SA. The tour of the house is excellent, but you can enjoy strolling around the grounds and the Children's Storybook Trail for no charge at all. Beautiful spot for a family or romantic picnic. We enjoyed milkshakes and coffees late in the day overlooking the rear grounds. Perfect.

It is hard to believe that such a beautiful English manor style home is only a 15 minute drive from the centre of Adelaide. We enjoyed an informative tour of the house, in which we learned about the original owners and furniture, which dates back to as early as the 17th century. The gardens would be a great place for...

We live down the road and only just found out about this place. The house is full of art and history and we also visited the current dog art exhibition which was delightful. The gardens are extensive and have loads of little hidden trails to secret gardens and interesting finds. We picked apples off the ground in the orchard (... More

Carrick Hill has many lovely spots to set up for a picnic in the grounds. The house is open to the general public on specified days and is well worth a visit, especially if you are interested in art works. There are a number of fabulous paintings and the house has been kept in it's original condition, a snap shot... More

Magnificent home on acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns. Amazing plants flowers and different trees and shrubs beautifully kept. So much history. My family me Bet was the architect who designed the house Flower show in but packed so just had coffee overlooking gardens in sunshine

We made a special trip out of town to see Carrick Hill and really enjoyed it. Art, furniture, furnishings, the library, the staircase, the china collection – and that’s before making it outside to the gardens or the stables. The gardens are free, the house constructed in the late 1930’s is ticketed, and there is also a restaurant for those... More
