$7 million pavilion opens at Carrick Hill

Carrick Hill’s new $7 million pavilion – part of the $699 million Adelaide City Deal – has been officially opened.

The pavilion features a restaurant, a large event space, bushland walks and the site’s extensive heritage gardens.

City of Adelaide Council says the pavilion’s 200-person multi-purpose event space and restaurant will host year-round functions and dining, offering visitors indoor or outdoor seating options with outstanding views of the gardens, city and sea.

The project is a part of the lucrative Adelaide City Deal, a partnership between the Council and Australian and South Australian Governments.

“Carrick Hill is a cherished destination for art and nature lovers, with more than 150,000 visitors taking advantage of its offerings in the last year alone,” said South Australian Arts Minister, Andrea Michaels.

“This new pavilion building, which was proudly supported by the Malinauskas Government, provides a new place for the South Australian community to come together and experience the beauty, history and tranquillity of this iconic venue.

“The combination of stunning scenery with incredible food and service will create an unforgettable dining and events experience.”

The project has also seen the addition of new car parking and improved visitor facilities and has been jointly funded through $3 million of Australian Government funding $1 million from the South Australian Government and $3 million from the Carrick Hill Development Foundation via its fundraising and donation network.

“I’m delighted to see this project come to life and am proud of the Australian Government’s contribution under the Adelaide City Deal,” said Federal Member for Boothby, Louise Miller-Frost.

“This impressive new facility opens a new chapter in the storied history of Carrick Hill and will give new and previous visitors another way to enjoy this remarkable place.”
