Event Details

Description

Surely one of Sydney’s most picturesque suburbs, perched on a rocky peninsula surrounded by the sparkling waters of Middle Cove, Castlecrag was recognised as a special place by Canberra’s designer Walter Burley Griffin and his partner Marion Mahoney, way back in the 1920s. They made a plan for Castlecrag to develop as the perfect garden suburb, with small houses surrounded by trees and rocky outcrops. Little did they realise what property values would do to that dream.

However, it always has been an architectural hot spot and includes houses by many of Australia’s most interesting practitioners of architecture.  The views of the harbour on this tour are spectacular.

Tour leader Ben Gerstel is a local architect who has developed this tour to reveal the suburb's development from its earliest days to present day revealing the most recent modern contemporary architecture.
