About this event
Castlecrag has always been an architectural hot spot and includes houses by many of Australia’s most interesting practitioners of architecture. The tour commences at a residence by well-known architect Peter Muller. 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 Harbour. Castlecrag was recognised as a special place by Canberra’s designer Walter Burley Griffin and his partner Marion Mahony. They made a plan for Castlecrag to develop it as the perfect garden suburb, with small houses surrounded by trees and rocky outcrops.
Volunteer 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.
