  • A very interesting place to visit and absorb its history. However, a private concern needs to update the offering to maximise its return and allow necessary improvements. For example, a detailed website linked to a smart phone App could make the visit more informative and enrich the experience of Martindale Hall. A small download fee for the App could cover costs and provide an extra revenue stream while the same caretaker arrangements are maintained.
  • A very interesting place to visit with some spooky stories. They lived in a different world. Such great history.
  • Must see! Beautifully preserved piece of South Australia’s history!
  • Great well organised and staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. Worth the cost of entry.
  • A beautifully presented and restored mansion in the midst of almost nowhere, Martindale Hall is well worth an hour or two of exploration. The stories behind the collection and of individual pieces are a unique piece of Australian history.
