In April enjoy a special discount on the Castle Cove Walking Tour. Enjoy a Saturday afternoon immersing yourself in 1960’s suburbia and trace how it is changing. Be reminded of your growing up years – of textured coloured brick, decorative balustrades and lots and lots of features too good to miss!
In 1920 Walter Burley Griffin founded the Greater Sydney Development Association (GSDA), which purchased 650 acres of Middle Harbour and encompassed the peninsulas of Castlecrag, Middlecove and Castlecove. Castlecove was the last of which to be developed as a suburb.
Originally Castlecove was a pure 1950’s and 1960’s single dwelling suburb and one of the first to incorporate a golf course. The area is now gentrifying, with houses either being renovated or knocked down. Over the course of the tour you will view numerous buildings designed by architects. These include works by Martin and King Architects, White Box Architecture, Harry Seidler & Associates, Marston Architects, Bruce Rickard and Luigi Roselli Architects.
Date: Saturday 16 April 2016
