Castlecrag has always 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.
Castlecrag is 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. They made a plan for Castlecrag to develop it as the perfect garden suburb, with small houses surrounded by trees and rocky outcrops.
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.
