A magnificent Georgian designed mansion set in rolling countryside near the Clare Valley. For a nominal charge you are free to roam many of the rooms but unfortunately not allowed to photograph inside. Its a shame the public doesn't have the opportunity to see more buildings with such workmanship any more. Just don't go on a Tuesday.

Thank you to National Trust of SA for caring enough about our history to make martindale hall available for us to enjoy. Well worth the 30 min detour from the main road to see and experience the history of our pioneers. For a $12 entry fee for adults it is also affordable. Allow an hour to go through the house...

A fantastic time capsule of what life for the country squire and his family would have been like. Lets hope it doesn't fall into developers hands & the SA Government hands it over to the National Trust.

This magnificent example of our history is well worth a visit. The young woman at the desk was incredibly well informed as to the history of the building and answered all our questions. This is a place where you can actually enter rooms and get a feel for the life in centuries past. Sadly the future is in doubt as... More

Felt like I was transported back in time walking around the rooms and hallways of Martindale Hall. I just love learning about the history of places and families. And having been a long time fan of the "Picnic at Hanging Rock" movie, it was an added bonus that scenes from the movie were filmed here. It has been amazingly preserved... More

I'm so glad we visited, this is an exceptional trip back in time. For $12 per adult we spent several hours wandering the home, each room holding information for us, as we imagined what living in such a luxurious home would have been like. A wonderful part of South Australia's history, which must always be preserved. Just beautiful!

This gracious building provides a serene backdrop for a leisurely picnic. Considering the scant funds available to pay for the upkeep of this historical delight, it is in fine shape. The gardens are lovely. Please keep this historical site available for all members of the public to enjoy. [Mirandaaaa!!!!]

Well worth a visit to see this beautiful house in the Australian countryside. Would love to have seen it in its heyday. Some of the old family photos are gorgeous showing the house in use as a family home. Some beautiful furniture and household items n display.
