Suburb Overview

Castlecrag is a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 8 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Willoughby.

Castlecrag is a suburb of historical significance that is bounded to the north, east and south by Middle Harbour and to the west by the heavily congested Eastern Valley Way. Castlecrag shares its postcode, 2068, with the surrounding suburbs of Willoughby, Middle Cove and North Willoughby.

Castlecrag was originally planned by Walter Burley Griffin, who named the suburb after a towering crag of rock overlooking Middle Harbour, known locally as Edinburgh Castle. Griffin came to Castlecrag in 1925 after tiring of the politics surrounding implementation of his designs for Australia 's capital city, Canberra.

Early homes in Castlecrag were built using natural stone to blend into the environment, a common practice in architecture of the Arts and Crafts Movement, which was concerned with creating "the human touch" as distinct from mass production. Later homes were built with bricks using Griffin's patented Knitlock system. Historically, Castlecrag was noted in the early 20th Century as an experiment in communal and community planning and living, and for the liberal intellectual, Theosophical, Anthroposophical and Natural history views of its inhabitants.

Castle Crag Post Office opened on 1 September 1937 and was renamed Castlecrag in 1941.

The streets in the southern older, portion of the suburb were named after parts of castles: The barbette, The Barbican, The Barricade, The Bartizan, The Bastion, The Battlement, The Bulwark, The Citadel, The High Tor, The Outpost, The Palisade, The Parapet, The Postern, The Rampart, The Redoubt, The Scarp, The Tor Walk and Sortie Port. There are also Tower, Casement, and Turrett Reserves, and the main street through the centre is Edinburgh Road.

More recently the residents of the suburb have been noted for their opposition to the Warringah Freeway , which was originally planned to link the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Northern Beaches, but today terminates just south of Castlecrag in Naremburn.

In 1921, Walter Burley Griffin began designing Castlecrag, a model residential suburb that was sympathetic to the Australian natural environment. Upon arriving in Australia in 1913, Griffin was struck by the natural beauty of the Sydney Habour, and at the first Australian town planning conference;he emphasised that best planning practice should respect the natural character of the site

Also at the heart of Griffin

The roads of Castlecrag were planned to suit the topography of the area;following the natural contours of the land. This contrasted with the grid plan, which was characteristic of many suburbs in Sydney at the time;reflecting Griffin

Griffin designed reserves that were linked together by a network of walkways, providing the community with ample space for recreation and bushwalking whilst retaining the bushland backdrop. The roads, paths and reserves were diligently planned for the convenience and pleasure of the residents and to retain views. Griffin
