About the region

Also known as Neville Lawrie Reserve Quarry, the entry is situated just to the right of the entry of Daisy Hill Forest. Park your car, make sure to bring a water bottle and start the 2.8km walk along the Buhot Curcuit, staying on the park rangers loose rock 4wd track. Please note this is also a mountain bike track so it is very easily accessible for serious bike riders. After 2.5km you will reach a gate which will state that the quarry is approx. 300m ahead on your left. Once you make the turn left, all the beautiful native Australian trees open up into this panoramic green and blue quarry.
