Hillview Quarries is located in Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula. For over 80 years it has supplied brown and grey granite products to local, state and federal government authorities as well as to private contractors, retail garden supply outlets and the public.
Renowned for exemplary environmental management of the site, Hillview has won awards and been praised for its quarry rehabilitation and environmental focus. Located on the Arthur’s Seat escarpment and adjacent to the Arthur’s Seat State Park, the Hillview Quarries site is host to many species of flora and fauna. It is proud to have a long history of carefully managing and nurturing native species of plants and animals. For example, the Quarry has a full-time horticulturist and ensures all revegetation is done with trees propagated in its own nursery from seed collected from trees on site. To date over 80,000 trees have been planted.
