Easy track
Starting from the carpark at the end of Quarry Track, Tea Tree Gully, this circuit walk takes you around the former quarry in Anstey Hill Recreation Park via the Little Quarry Loop track. Ambling around a former quarry site, the Little Quarry Loop is an easy 650-metre trail catering for all levels of ability. Quartzite was quarried here in the late 1800s, and the Little Quarry Loop gives you a glimpse of one of these quarries. The trail is well-marked with a series of signs, and is often used by walkers as well as novice bike riders such as children. There are several accessible picnic areas with gazebos dotted around the trail along the way. The trail is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers, as the terrain is hard packed gravel that is mostly level. Dogs on a lead are welcome. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
