STATHAM QUARRY – GOOSEBERRY HILL

13/07/2014 – An Action Outdoor Association walk.

A varied and interesting walk with interesting terrain comprising of a few small hills, bush scrub, some loose gravel and bitumen road. Be prepared to climb under wire fence. Good lookout on top of quarry. Afternoon tea at the quarry. (Scones jam and cream provided – bring your own drinks.)    This is the description of the walk provided on the AOA website, it looked like a good afternoon walk.

If your eyes are good enough you can see the guys abseiling down the cliff.  We chose to walk down the easy way along a much easier gradient to the bottom of the quarry.
