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

What a beautiful place to visit and spend some time looking around and then relaxing with a coffee or a drink - a great place for a meal too. Such an interesting venue with very interesting history. The grounds are just beautiful to walk around also. Definitely recommend a visit for all ages.

Can't believe you can wander around the grounds for free! We scored a tour through the house with only us and the guide, so it was like a personal escort, and they showed us stuff and let us into areas not available on bigger tour groups ... house was equally impressive on the inside as it was from the outside...

You can have fun walking around here imagining the lives of the couple who built this estate. I'm not wildly keen on the oak furniture and fittings, but it is certainly accurate to its time, and you can feel the lives of the original residents. There is even a Dior dress which seems to have belonged to the first wife.... More
