The quarry was opened in 1922 and produces light-coloured sandstone for building purposes. It is located near the mouth of the Hawkesbury River and the stone was used in the construction of the National War Memorial in Canberra.

    Hi there,

    I'm just wondering whats happening about Wondabyne quarry next to the station. Is that for sale / operational at this current point? Any information regarding the status of this quarry would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Thanks Blake for your comment, the site is owned by Gosford Quarries so suggest you make enquiries with this company. It did reopen in 2000 to source the sandstone to complete the spires on St Mary's Cathedral Sydney. It is mentioned on various sites such as the Great North Walk so I will add these links to the website.
