The Secretariat is currently undertaking a project involving photos and aerial videos of old quarry sites which have exhausted their materials and been completely rehabilitated into park lands, farming, housing….etc.

We are after your input to advise us of such sites especially ones which you have been involved in and maybe able to provide us with old photos of the quarry when it was in operation.

We would like to identify at least 10 sites / locations if possible.

If you think you have something of interest or could be of any help, please contact the Secretariat on 1300 267 222
