Carrick Hill

From $12

Details
Carrick Hill is fortunate in being one of the few period homes in Australia to survive with its original contents almost completely intact and its grounds undiminished. It was a centre of stylish living; and friends hold fond memories of a house constantly filled with laughter, parties, artists, music, good wine, fine food and dancing; and heady with the scent of masses of flowers. While those days are now gone, Carrick Hill remains as an important example of the lifestyle of two wealthy and cultured Australians of the mid-twentieth century. Carrick Hill is also wonderful for children, with a story book trail featuring beloved characters from their favourite novels, and areas of adventure and imagination throughout the grounds.
