Heatherlie Quarry

This former sandstone quarry in the Grampians National Park was operational from the late 1870’s until the 1890’s. The quarrymen were mostly Italian who built a range of wooden and stone huts to live in. Today, three stone huts remain and require constant maintenance to remain safe for visitors.

Tribal Tracks were engaged to repair sections of the hut which have deteriorated over the years. Using material originally quarried on site but left there by the last operators, we replaced the replaced the window jamb using the traditional plug and feather technique to split the sandstone.
