Arts & Culture
Carrick Hill is a publicly accessible historic property in the nearby suburb of Springfield. It was the Adelaide home of Sir Edward "Bill" Hayward and his wife Lady Ursula, and contains a large collection of drawings, sculptures, antiques and paintings. Completed in 1939 and built in the style of an English manor, it is one of the few period homes in Australia to have survived with its grounds undiminished and most of its original contents intact.

One of the most visited museums in Australia it holds collections of national and international significance. It is a leader in remote and regional community engagement, and in Australian Aboriginal heritage and scientific research. My favourte has always been the Egyptian Room. There's a cafe and smaller museums behind the main building focussing on Police and Nautical History all of which have free entry.

This popular walk is short and sweet. With a cafe at each end, a well made path and regular seating, this walk is popular for a reason. On almost any morning of the year the trail attracts a range of people: some casually walking, others using it as a training walk, some runners, and others with heavy-simulated packs training for distant hiking locations like Nepal. As the walk involves some steep sections, the time taken to walk the trail can vary significantly. On a busy weekend, car parking at Waterfall Gully can be limited. Starting hiking from Mt Lofty instead of Waterfall Gully can be a good way to use the downhill as a warm up, to super charge your up-hill efforts!
