Great place to take tea (or something stronger) on the terrace with glorious views. Staff are friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking and walks to take and don't miss a tour of the house

I love this house and garden. It is well worth having a guide for your first visit as the history of this house is fascinating. From the staircase and panelling to the amazing artists and the incredible family that bought them together. The gardens are superb and integrating the fairy-tale and classic stories into it draws you through the entire... More

This Manor is only 15 minutes from Adelaide CBD. Cost was only $10.50 with a free tour. The guide told us heaps of history and also had a sense of humour. Gorgeous gardens, even the koala in the tree seemed happy, looking down on us. The Manor was so well maintained. Highly recommend this attraction.

Perfect place for a picnic, or a wedding! The gardens are so pretty. The tour inside the house isn't too exciting but the cafe is nice as well. I love coming here.

We walked around the grounds and gardens. The flowers were looking lovely and the grounds well planted. There was a wedding on later and it would have been a lovely place to have it. We paid $10.50 to visit the house and did not wait for a guide but the lady at the door gave us a potted history. There... More

Ventured out last weekend to Carrick Hill. The gardens are heavenly and beautifully manicured, the inside of the house was interesting though quite small. I was very disappointed that there are no photographs allowed to be taken inside the house. The café is very expensive and not family friendly at all so would advise a picnic there with your own...

A very pretty house and garden with a beautiful view over Adelaide. There is a fee to enter the house but the garden is free and very interesting. Watch out for the story book characters trail at the bottom of the garden, a hobbit's house, and elephants! A lovely place for morning or afternoon tea. Something for everyone.

We loved the view until it rained. Nice to have a cafe to go to when the weather was inclement. Although the food was expensive there, it was worth the wait, to be able to sit down until the weather was more pleasant.

Not to be missed!! Excellent gardens!! Well maintained!! Lovely trip for the old and young. Carrick Hill is situated on a hillside on the edge of Adelaide, with wonderful views down to the sea. The garden has been beautifully landscaped, with sweeping lawns and such features as a pear tree pergola and bushland trails in the surrounding hillside.
