Beautiful grounds and a lovely house. It was enjoyable for my elderly parents, but nothing I would do on my own. You can tour the house and grounds in less than an hour. Costs around 12 per person or 28 for a family.

An absolutely gorgeous gem at the base of the Adelaide hills. Wander the gardens and feel like you're miles away. Take a picnic and explore!

Just a twenty minute drive from Adelaide, this 1930's mansion attests to the power of wealth. The house is a treasure trove of art and English oak and the staircase must be seen. The Master bathroom looks out across the Adelaide plains and the city. The gardens are superb and in season the roses magnificent. A cafe had food and... More

We visited Carrick Hill and were not disappointed. The house has been beautifully preserved with a wonderful collection of art works and the items displayed were amazing. Definitely worth a visit just to see the fabulous staircase.

Beautiful gardens and the kids loved the Story Trail! We stopped by as a quick visit after our day at Cleland Wildlife Park so we didn't get a chance to go through the house...next time :)

The best thing about this place is that you don't have to pay to walk the gardens. It's a great little spot to stretch your legs and I have often completed the children's trail with my kids.

The house and gardens are beautiful. My kids enjoyed the house. The food is lovely but I don't think they know how to run the service in the resto, you have to constantly chase to get serviced. I noticed they didn't explain to us the dish but they did it on other guest. I'm hoping it's not because of our... More

About 15 minutes from Adelaide is the beautiful period “stately” home built in the 1930’s – Carrick Hill. Set in extensive grounds overlooking Adelaide, it’s a treat to wander around through the beautiful, very English gardens and then relax for a snack or cuppa in the friendly cafe. We weren’t there at the right time for a guided tour of... More

Entrance fee to the house museum, which is very attractive and the tour guides are in fact enthusiast about it. Also the garden around is impressive

Great visit for a slow day. The house and garden offers ample opportunity to slowly explore and appreciate the beauty of the place. It is a must for people who love history!
