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.
Discover the many Griffin pathways winding down and through Castlecrag, leading to many architectural gems new and contemporary as well as heritage.
This walk primarily is in the Burley Griffin Estate and includes seeing some Griffin & Nichol houses and Lucas Houses. Tour leader Ben Gerstel is a local architect with many stories to tell.
Please arrive at the start point 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
Bring a hat and/or umbrella and wear comfortable shoes as it is a hilly terrain in parts - tours operate regardless of weather. Tickets are non-refundable.
