Built by Adelaide architect Eric McMichael from plans drawn up in London in 1937-39.
Stangate House is in the heart of Aldgate. Designed by Adelaide architect Eric McMichael, the 1940’s house is set in four acres and overlooks one of the most beautiful camellia gardens in Australia.
The gardens were recognised by the International Camellia Society in 2012 as an International Camellia Garden of Excellence, at the time one of only 3 in Australia and only 30 worldwide. It is also the home of the Camellia Society Adelaide Hills Inc.

one of the Hill’s best kept secrets.
Bring along provisions for a picnic and spend the day enjoying the tranquil garden setting. The garden was designed by Elsie Cornish, a renowned garden designer who landscaped with a unique sense of colour and composition. Home to one of Australia’s largest oak trees where people have picnicked for over a hundred years, the gardens were also recognised by the International Camellia Society in 2012 as an International Camellia Garden of Excellence. While the camellias are in full bloom in early spring the garden has something magical to offer visitors anytime of the year.
