Carrick Hill Reviews & Ratings

  • This house is magnificent. I really loved the gardens and the tranquility of sitting having coffee and cake whilst looking at the skyline of Adelaide. I would recommend visiting, especially if you love flowers and grand old houses. This was one place I really enjoyed in Adelaide.

  • Wonderful place for a picnic lunch. Also for families and children plenty of space. May Gibbs trail is great for the Children.

  • A beautiful Manor open to the public. For a small fee you can look inside the Carrick Hill Manor. Its a great place to have a lazy romatic picnic within the garden surrounds. Or bring the kids and let them explore the gardens.

  • Love love love this house. What a view! We visited twice in a week as we didn’t get to walk the garden due to strong wind. Glad we came back for the 2nd time for the book trail.

  • Spent a wonderful morning here. Beautiful house and gardens with a 1st class art collection.A good cafe and even bush walks if you have any energy left.
