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 ahouse 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.

Historic home ‘Grange’ and exhibition gallery
The Grange is the former colonial residence of the renowned explorer Captain Charles Napier Sturt. It was built in 1840 in what was known as the “Reedbeds”. After many years of neglect, the house was restored in the 1960s to ensure that Sturt’s contribution to South Australia’s history was preserved.
Sturt’s most significant expedition, the 1829-30 journey to the mouth of the River Murray, played a major role in the establishment of South Australia. The Grange was also the point of departure for Captain Sturt’s expedition into Central Australia in 1844-46 whereupon he reached within 280kms from the centre of Australia.
In 2004 an extensive gallery wing was developed to display significant artefacts belonging to Captain Sturt which include the Union Jacks carried on both Sturt’s major expeditions, Sturt’s travelling wash stand, his telescope and the original Desert Peas collected on his return journey from central Australia. The Sturt Desert Pea became the State Flora Emblem.
The Grange is registered on the National Estate and the State Heritage List. The museum is a Registered Museum with HistorySA.
A special feature for visitors is the Herbert Croker model of Sturt’s campsite on the Murrumbidgee River before the boats were assembled for the voyage down the River Murray. The breathtaking model details with great precision all the elements of the campsite, from the construction of the whale boat with carpentry tools to tent accommodation, eating utensils and weaponry.
The museum offers guided tours of the ‘Grange’, interpretive displays accounting the life and times of Sturt and a series of media displays which capture the essence of Sturt’s expeditions.

The Cathedral was started in 1869 and the first section was completed and opened fully for services in 1877. Photographs of the building of the Cathedral can be seen in the passage to the northern side of the Chancel. In the 1990s much restoration was started. The floor needed replacing; some tiles were retained and others made in England to match were used. The roof, of Welsh slate, had to be replaced again with Welsh slate. The pinnacles around the Lady Chapel have been removed until funds are available to repair the damage done over a century's exposure to the atmosphere. Restoration is a continuing activity in any building of this nature. St Peter's Cathedral is open to visitors from 9:30am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday. Free guided Tours are held every Wednesday at 11am, and every Sunday at 12.30pm; tours take about 45 minutes.
