Visited this absolute gem of a historic, lovingly preserved and expansive portal into the life and times of one of Adelaide's most respected and philanthropic families. The public can enter and enjoy the extensive, manicured grounds (which have not been eroded by selling off parcels of land for housing) free of charge. Many facilities are provided to make a family... More

Lovely gardens simply to walk around, lots for young children to run around and discover. Great coffee and lunches served in the garden.

George and the team produced some of the most amazing dishes! The homemade gnocchi and wild mushroom was absolutely amazing!!! The table service was simply amazing and made the experience a 10 out of 10! We would highly recommend the restaurant and surrounding garden to all!

Firstly the grounds and gardens were just stunning! Picturesque would be an understatement! It was lovely to stroll through and as four grown adults, even we loved the story book trail! Then comes the restaurant and the service. George has some of the best customer service skills in Adelaide. Coming from a background in hospitality myself, that is a HUGE... More

One of Adelaide's most historic homesteads. Open to the general public, entry fee to see inside the house. Beautifully sculpted garden, ideal for seeing plays etc during warmer months. Catering is lack luster and there is much room for improvement. Not difficult to get sones, jam & cream correct!

This attraction just south of the city, has magnificent gardens in which to stroll, an arbour, a wonderful house furnished with art work and interesting furniture (fee to enter house), and a restaurant with fine food or a relaxed setting for coffee and cake. There was nothing to dislike.

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.
