Halswell Quarry at Redmund Spur

Did you know Halswell Quarry currently holds the title of being the longest continuously operating quarry site in Australasia, having begun in 1865, and not closing for business until 1990. It is the quality of the blue stone that made it sought after in the early days of the Garden City’s development, many of the city’s heritage buildings having been built from it.
