The Sydney Architecture Festival (SAF) 2013 starts today and will continue until Sunday 10 November. The ideal way to explore this year's theme of "Your Community, Your City" is to enjoy one of the AAA's architectural walking tours, taking place over the duration of the festival.
Discover some of the key buildings in the city centre on the 'Sydney City Walk', or experience some of the city's rich collection of iconic buildings on the 'Twilight Walk'. Explore Sydney's oldest suburb on 'The Rocks Walk', or rove further afield and delight in a garden suburb on the 'Castlecrag Walking Tour'. Perhaps you just want to gain an overview of how architecture and the city have developed over 200 years during the 'Walk Through Time' tour.

With more than 60 events, 2013 SAF brings an explosion of architectural activity to Sydney and its suburbs including; guided architectural tours; architectural talks and symposiums; open houses; public installations; exhibitions; and children's activities.
The 2013 curatorial theme is designed to encourage Sydneys' residents of all ages and backgrounds - along with members of the architecture and design community - to actively engage and interact with their local architecture and built environment.
