The granite quarry was a centre of industrial activity during construction of Wellington Dam in the 1930s. It now provides a spectacular backdrop to the popular picnic area.

The Quarry is located below the Wellington Dam Café. It was formed when they needed materials for the construction of the dam wall. Nowadays the rock face is used for abseiling and rock climbing (by booking only). It is a wonderful spot for a picnic with impressive views.
