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

Three of us went for a walk around the gorgeous gardens and even though the roses were over their best there was lots more to enjoy. The guided tour of the home was interesting and well worth the cost and the afternoon tea was ok but not lots to choose from but the view made up for it.

The are big grounds and gardens to picnic in, and the house is interesting as well. Food was expensive with not a great choice for children. It was great you could take photos inside.

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.
