It is that time of year again the Tour Down Under is coming through our next door neighbor town of Uraidla. This means that getting to the quarry might be difficult on the day, so please use the map below as a guide to work out a good route.
I have included alternate (bikes will be everywhere!) routes to avoid the main race, these include the Basket Range and Carey Gully Quarries.
This year the TDU is doing 7 laps of Uraidla and Piccadilly starting at about 12:15pm on the 17th with a very rough finish time of 2:30pm but I would expect this to be later.
Welcome to another issue of our newsletter. This quarter we will be showcasing Quarry Face stone, giving you some insight into our matching services and showing you some great projects that have been completed recently.
With the cold weather behind us, hopefully you can get back into your gardens and give them a makeover.
The boys @ Glen Osmond Landscaping have sent through some photos of a job they did a while back. They have turned what was an almost unmaintainable sloped incline into a beautiful terraced garden. This increases the usability of the land at the top and bottom of the slope, as well as increasing safety and visual effect.

Coastal Landscapes and Fencing have sent though some new photos of projects completed using our stone. As shown below they have created a garden retaining wall using our mixed Sawn Wallers in a dry stack configuration. The vivid green of the plants above really complement the stone and make it stand out.
Outback Oasis has sent through some photos of our Sawn Wallers, Natural Capping and Random Paving. By melding the stone into the landscape they have created a beautiful terraced garden area, and flat grassed section, good work boys. Check out their profile on our webpage for contact info and more photos.
Roadworks have been scheduled to perform significant repairs on Greenhill Rd at Carey Gully to rectify storm damage. Please refer to letter from DPTI below.
“Greenhill Road will be temporarily closed between Deviation Road and Tanahmerah Road,
Carey Gully, from Tuesday 3 April to late May 2018 (weather permitting), with traffic detoured
via Rangeview Road, Carey Gully Road, Gum Flat Road and Tanahmerah Road.
Businesses and residents on Greenhill Road will be able to access their property and are
asked to follow the directions of traffic management staff and obey all signage.
In the event of extreme weather, these works may be rescheduled.
If you require any further information please telephone DPTI on 1300 794 880 or email
The only way into Carey Gully Sandstone is from the Balhannah end of Greenhill Rd, not far up from the end of the roadworks so it is relatively painless. Please drive through carefully obeying all road workers and signs.
Phil from The Great Outdawes has provided some beautiful photos of a landscape project he has completed using our stone. He has done a great job giving the customer a couple of flat areas to deal with a sloping block. With lighting and a water feature how can you go wrong, Well done Phil!
