Castlecrag is an upscale, residential suburb in the Lower North Shore region of Sydney. If the neighborhood's name suggests an aristocratic pedigree, its older homes support the notion: the original houses built on its hilly streets in the 1920s were made of stone, giving it them a gothic, historic appearance. Many of them are considered architecturally significant and these days the Australian Architecture Association offers walking tours. Other home styles have been added to the neighborhood and the hills seem like they afford a view for every one.
The main thoroughfare, Edinburgh Road, has basics like a grocery store, butcher, and post office, some boutiques, and several well regarded restaurants offering Italian, French, Thai, Chinese, and European food.
The community has a preschool, a public school for students of all ages, and a Montessori school for 3 to 6 year olds.
Castlecrag is bordered on the north by Middle Cove and Crag Cove, on the east by Sugarloaf Bay, on the south by Sailors Bay and Northbridge, and on the west by Willoughby.
