Willunga Slate (our main source of stone)
Willunga Slate is our main source of natural stone. We work this quarry 1.5 days a week. The slate that we excavate comes out in a variety of colours, textures and patterns. We are privileged to be able to excavate, split and hand pick the stone that we use in peoples gardens. The quarry is a beautiful place and we love working there.
