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

Carrick Hill is part of South Australian history and really worth a visit. I love the grand old staircase and the private rooms that were used by the Haywards. They had some wonderful paintings too. It's become an icon and is worth supporting. It has gorgeous grounds too.

Having been to a wedding there recently I can say this is definitely a stunning venue for a wedding or a weekend picnic. The only issue when we were there was that there were multiple ceremonies on at once and we could hear audio feedback from another wedding.

We had a lovely time looking around the gardens. We did the house tour which was great expect it had a little bit too much focus on the art and not as much as we would have liked on the furniture.

I love these old houses and estates. Walking through history is just soooo interesting. Definitely recommend people visit here and lounge in the gardens or pay a few dollars and go through the house.

Carrick Hill, magnificently preserved and presented house and garden. A walk through the rooms, gardens and stables is facinating. The gardens are a perfect setting to enjoy the great food from the cafe or to set up your own picnic. I love this place, only a short drive from the CBD, a perfect place to take visitors or just somewhere... More

It is quite amazing a house of that age was looked after and maintained in such a great shape. So much character and history packed into it, so much quality furniture and high class finishes, it gives you a taste of the past time wealthy and cultured lifestyle in Adelaide. Not to mention the beautiful gardens, where you can spend... More

What a gem, who couldn't appreciate this building! The tour is very average, but you would have to see it once, the best part is surprisingly good for kids and walks and great picnics. Property best back drop for a wedding. I wouldn't go there expecting a great day of excitement, once you have seen the building, the picnic or... More

Beautiful gardens with nice plantings and also lots of activity toys for children. There was a wedding going on in Carrick Hill House on the day we visited but there was still plenty of parking spaces
