This place has everything. History, garden, art gallery, a children's garden paradise, a walker's delight and a beautiful restaurant too. And you might just catch another wedding. We had ours there. A very special place.

A great place for a picnic - lots of shade around the beautiful grounds and lots of places for children to run around outside. A visit around the gardens is free. There is a charge to see inside the grand house, the history of which is fascinating, especially how the house was built around the staircase imported from England. Definitely... More

A very beautiful house. We only wish we had more time to explore the gardens. We were there on a whirlwind visit (only had 20mins). Quite expensive entry for what it is, but still lovely.

There is a bus from the City - half hour ride and a quick ten minwalk walk up the side of the School. So worth going to. Tudor home, light and airy. Full of beautiful Art Work that belonged to the Family. The house is marvellous, a bygone era that was so gracious. Small Tea Room and nice Gardens for... More

Great views and lookout from a different angle you don't usually see. Stop over and take it in. Not much there but great view

Carrick Hill has some lovely gardens with terrific views over the city. On a nice day you can take a picnic. The house is fascinating. Built in the 1930s but utilising purchases from an Jacobethan manor in England including a fantastic staircase that is the focal point of the house. There is a lot of interesting art and furnishings.

We visited Carrick Hill on our weekend in Adelaide and were very glad we did. We chose to go on our Friday afternoon rather than the Saturday to lessen the chances of a wedding taking place in the gardens. There were certainly no crowds and we found a secluded and peaceful spot in the gardens to eat our picnic lunch.... More

Definitely worth a detour to Springfield to see Carrick Hill. A charming house incorporating some historic remnants found in the UK but also home to a stunning collection of art and objets. The gardens are truly lovely and refreshments very enjoyable. Good for families, for picnics, for interstate and overseas guests; this is a very tranquil, charming place with strong... More
