Completely delightful and beautifully maintained/presented property. Definitely worth a visit. Except for the $12 house entry... which INCLUDES a guided tour and exhibition (if one is running) plus run of the house for as long as you like, a visit to Carrick Hill is FREE. Staff and volunteers throughout are professional and friendly. You can even bring your dog to... More

Can't believe I have lived all these years in Adelaide without visiting Carrick Hill. What a wonderful place. Took the 11.30am guided tour of the house with a very knowledgeable guide. The interior is stunning and the furniture and artworks amazing. The views of Adelaide from both inside the house and in the garden are some of the best. Even... More

The fact you can take and enjoy your own picnic lunch in the surroundings is a true pleasure. The story book trail is great for all kids both big and little. Taking a little extra bread to feed the ducks could be a nice way to enjoy your visit too.

i have visited Carrick Hill before for an exhibition, the building itself is stunning. This time it was for a garden wedding. The grounds were beautiful and the backdrop of the house made a nice setting for the wedding. Quite a lot of people were wandering the grounds and yet it didn't feel like the wedding was intruded upon. Great... More

I can't believe that I have lived in Adelaide for thirteen years and have never visited this grand building before. Take your time when walking through this historic site with breathtaking views over the city towards the sea. There was a wedding taking place in the manicured gardens and a children's birthday party in the picnic area. Well worth a... More

The gardens are simply brilliant and the original residence is stunning. The entire venue is extremely well-groomed. We went here for a summer wedding, the arbors the lawns the stately residence made the setting for the young couple very memorable. Photographers paradise particularly late in the arvo when the light is softer and there are shadows "to play with". Great... More

Carrick Hill visit is an excellent visit if you have a taste for history and love things grandeur. The paintings and artifacts in the house are rich in history and a pleasure for the eyes. Walk through the gardens if you are going wth chikdren. My daughter especially loved the children story book trail
