Blue Rock Quarry
Fulton Hogan creates, connects and cares for communities; building the roads, ports, airports, infrastructure and property which brings people together. We build communities literally from the ground up, starting with our own network of quarries, complemented by our asphalt, emulsion and pre-cast plants.
Fulton Hogan’s Blue Rock quarry is in Cedar Creek on Mount Tamborine in the Gold Coast hinterland of south-east Queensland. Mount Tamborine was formed during a volcanic eruption over twenty million years ago, which brought valuable minerals and rocks from the earth’s crust to the surface. Today those raw materials form the basis of the high quality construction and surfacing products that Fulton Hogan provides to clients across Australia.

Despite that Blue Rock is only forty kilometres south of Brisbane and close to the Pacific Highway, meaning the quarried stone can easily be transported to Queensland’s state capital and the Gold Coast, where both areas are experiencing rapid population growth and require huge volumes of construction and road infrastructure materials. The quarry enables Fulton Hogan to provide a complete solution for pavement construction and management, sourcing the bedrock and seeing the process all the way through to the final surface.
As in all Fulton Hogan’s quarries, Blue Rock uses the latest extraction processes developed as a result of extensive research and development. We have staff specifically focused on the environment to make our processes sustainable; the quarry incorporates the most stringent safety standards to ensure the wellbeing of our staff and any visitors to the site; and our best practice methods are designed to be cost-effective to promote long-term relationships with clients. Cost management and quality control are enhanced by Fulton Hogan’s comprehensive range of services that see the entire production cycle managed in-house from extraction of raw materials to creation of the finished product. Blue Rock quarry provides a wide range of products, from bulk fill and road base to asphalt mixes and specialty sands, to a diverse client base in Queensland including construction companies and infrastructure providers.
