It was a treat finding this place. The gentle uphill stroll was enough exercise for the day following the Boronia Peak walk.
These quarries are at the base of the Mt Difficult Range.
I didn’t tackle a climb to see the quarries rock wall face.

No. It just means I needed an easier day.
Many stately Victorian buildings have been built with Heatherlie sandstone. I adored seeing the abandoned Heatherlie Quarry workers’ huts made of the sandstone and local timbers.
