The site is a 86,000 sq metre Arkose Sandstone quarry in the Otway Ranges. Located in the Colac Otway Shire Council. The Quarry has been in operation since the late 19th century as a source for local stone to use in road and rail building.
Just outside the Victorian township of Beech Forest, The Quarry sits on a long ridge-line within the Otway Ranges running east-west.
The Quarry is still under licence and currently going through rehabilitation.

This is what we want to do
We are currently accepting project proposals for a range of creative and education based activities.
The Quarry is a site for the development of experiments in building and architecture, creative practices, education and technology.
We respectfully acknowledge the Gadubanud people as original inhabitants of the area now known as the Otway plains and ranges. We respectfully acknowledge elders – past, present and emerging. And we extend our deepest respects to all First Nations peoples. In the context of the work we do, we express gratitude for our shared connection through place, to the oldest continuing cultures on earth.
The Quarry is a carbon neutral project.
