Near Mintaro, South Australia
Martindale Hall, built in 1879, is a Georgian style mansion built for Edmund Bowman who lived the princely life here until 1891. More recently, the Hall was used as the set of a girl’s boarding school in the filming of the well-known Australian movie, Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Built largely in Manoora freestone, the ornately moulded and carved stonework is a tribute to the tradesmen of the day who were brought from England especially for this purpose. The Italian Renaissance interior is highlighted in the stately main hall and vestibule, with a domed glass roof, parquetry floor and the marvellous T-shaped staircase rising to the overhanging gallery.
The Hall is classified by the National and State Heritage Branch and the National Trust.
