Carrick Hill Reimagined - The Appeal

The objective of The Carrick Hill Trust is to ensure the estate holds firmly onto its heritage as it moves forward in time whole offering new generations a more vibrant visitor experience.

Nearly five years in the planning, The Trust has, in consultation with stakeholders and government, driven a bold and visionary Master Plan for Carrick Hill that will support its cultural, artistic, social and economic viability for decades to come.


The Pavilion

A new $5m stand-alone visitor centre is proposed for Carrick Hill. Located adjacent to the car park the Pavilion takes in the magnificent views of the house, garden and vista over the city to the coast. Encompassing a restaurant, cafe, function centre and gift shop, the Pavilion will be the entry point into the grounds for all visitors including those bushwalkers headed to the Wirraparinga Loop Trail and other walks.


The Australian Museum of Gardening

The Australian Museum of Gardening will be a new feature at Carrick Hill and builds on the significant level of visitor interest that the gardens attract. The Museum will house an expanding collection of garden tools, gardening paraphernalia, historic gardening books and resources sourced from donors Australia-wide.

We invite you to join us to make this bold vision a reality. We need your financial help.

Please invest in the future of this South Australian icon, creating a richer and more vibrant visitor experiance for Carrick Hill's many local, interstate and international visitors. You will be contributing to the value of this significant cultural asset and preserving its history and heritage for future generations.

Your donation can build the bridge between now and the future.

100% of every donation will go towards the Master Plan vision and all donations over $2 are tax tax deductible. Opportunities exist to provide recognition for corporate and individual donations and these can be tailored to suit.
