Privacy & Access to House

Please note that the Fishwick house is an occupied private dwelling.  The only vantage points accessible to the public are from the road directly in front of the house and from the nearby Tower Reserve.  



This website aims to promote the ideas and principles of Walter Burley Griffin through examination of his most celebrated Australian residential building, the Fishwick house in Castlecrag, Sydney.  It is loosely associated with the websites of the Walter Burley Griffin Societies of Australia and America which have the same aims, although these each have a very much broader scope.  While every effort has been made to ensure the validity of the facts and opinions expressed in this site, they may not represent those of either of the Griffin societies or of other interested parties.
