A guide led us through this gorgeous home designed in the 1930's by newlyweds, Edward Hayward and Ursula Barr Smith. The land on which Carrick Hill now sits was given to them as a wedding gift from Ursula's father.
The Edwardian-style gardens are stunning to gaze at and interesting to explore. In the midst of these impressive grounds is a Children's Story Book Trail using classic tales to encourage a child's imagination.
Carrick Hill also has a Spring Program with various exhibits that run through to the end of November. One of these exhibits, "Endless Pleasure Exhibition", is about how Australians have chosen to experience gardens and gardening.
