Burley Griffin Incinerator

Burley Griffin Incinerator
The Burley Griffin Incinerator at 47-53 Forsyth Street in Glebe was designed by Walter Burley Griffin as a municipal incinerator, much smaller and simpler in design than the examples at Pyrmont and Willoughby.

A large Semi-circular stone structure nearby is in the same style as the stone base of incinerator. It was built 1933.
