The Basket Range Sandstone Uraidla and Summertown Country Show for 2019 is coming soon
Show Day is coming, Sunday November 3rd 2019
Basket Range Sandstone is proud to once again be the major sponsor for the 2019 Uraidla and Summertown Country Show. Each year the event is growing and we love being a part of it. Seeing the local community come together by putting their expertise and know-how behind the show, is something rarely seen in recent times.
We will have a stand at the show with plenty of info and a couple of friendly faces ready to have a chat about the best product for your next project. Feel free to drop by, say hello, and get those creative juices flowing. This amazing natural product is very versatile and can be used in many different ways, including but not limited to Retaining Walls, Dry Stack Walls, Paving, Capping, House Facades, Gabion and even clean fill.
The event is highly anticipated every year by locals and visitors alike. In cooperation with the Uraidla Sustainability Fair, the Uraidla Show is a great way to see what our fantastic Hills community has to offer in the way of produce and entertainment.
A family-friendly day, the Uraidla Show has something for everyone. From entertainment and live music to food and wine, locals showcasing their skills and produce, and much more. Please visit their website for more details, https://uraidlashow.com/.
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.
