A little piece of history ....

Gorgeous wandering gardens, perfect for a summer picnic. If you like a little history, pay the small entrance fee and enjoy a look through the house, really interesting.

What a stunning house in picturesque gardens. I was astounded with the number of Artworks in the house;Epstein,Sickert,Gaugin also showing was a collection by Hannaford,that was worth a look on its own. The guided tour of the house was very informative. I would go again in the spring to enjoy the gardens even more.

Came here as a child many years ago but never appreciated it until returning now as an adult. To visit the garden area is free and this alone is well worth a visit, lots of photo opportunities, flowers and gardens to wander. There is a storybook trail for the kids, and a coffee shop for the adults. Inside the house... More

Stunning grounds and interesting gardens around an amazing heritage treasure. It is great to experience the house and the style of the Hayward family and see how they lived. A great afternoon exploring.

Set in beautiful grounds, this amazing house is so much a part of South Australian history. A tour of the house itself is a must. Incredibly designed and built around the 16th century oak staircase, windows and door surrounds brought from England, it is a stunning family home. You can see and feel how they lived, and the art treasures... More

A bit smaller than Downton, but it is in Adelaide. Well worth the visit for the house, the garden and the cafe. The twice daily guided tours are interesting and informative. The gardens have appropriate entertainment to keep the kids interested and active. We enjoyed the rose garden and the pleached pear walk. The cafe is reasonably priced and has... More
