 The Castle Hill Quarry has been set aside by the Townsville City Council for recreation purposes and for artistic performances.

The Townsville City Council's planning process for the future of the whole site will take at least a year. The quarry is a logical setting off point for many walks around Castle Hill.



 From MacDonald's restaurant in Hugh Street, the Front Quarry's wall is visible, and the Upper Terrace cliffs.
