7th March 2009

Went ashore in Taylors Bay (Bruny Island) and walked along the beach until we found the track that goes along above the quarry face to Ventenat Point. We climbed down a very steep track into the quarry and explored. The old sandstone quarry was opened up in the 1860 to supply sandstone for the Melbourne General Post Office and other public buildings and ceased operation in the depression of the 1890s.Of the old workings, some are now full of water and with old props still showing.
