Mountain Quarry
Australia

Boya was crucial as a site of quarries. The Mountain Quarry and the Government Quarry were both important blue stone quarries in their time. The harbour and moles at Fremantle were built using stone from the Government quarry. The Government Quarry (on the south eastern part of the locality) was variously named during its time of operation: Mr O'Connor's quarry, the Fremantle Harbour Works Darlington Quarry, the Public Works Quarry, the Government Quarry, and it is currently known as Hudman Road Quarry. Being at the edge of the Greenmount National Park and the Hudman Road Quarry, the locality has been subject to serious threatening bushfires from these locations in recent years. In the history of the early Eastern Railway - which passed through Boya, Boya was the location of 'Cape Horn' a notorious curve at the 22 miles mark, where runaway trains derailed a number of times. The community has a rich architectural variety of houses due to the challenge of steep and rocky blocks. - Wikipedia "Boya"

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
