Children’s Storybook Trail


Designed to enable children to explore and discover the natural world, this short walk through Carrick Hill’s parkland uses classic children’s tales to encourage the imagination.

The first stage of the Children’s Story Book Trail mainly focuses on British classic tales that reflect Sir Edward and Lady Hayward’s era. It is thanks to this couple’s gift to the people of South Australia in 1986 that children are able to enjoy the house and gardens today.

Stories featured include;
Wind in the Willows
The Hobbit
Three Billy Goats Gruff
Quidditch Tree
The Secret Garden
The Jungle Book
The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe
The Magic Faraway Tree
Charlotte’s Web
