Established early in the history of European settlement of the Moggill district, Sugars’ Quarry at Anstead on the banks of the Brisbane River provided a livelihood for generations of local residents and workers, and saw its share of accidents and fatalities. I identified a wide range of sources detailing working conditions, machinery used in quarrying and crushing, drilling and blasting, and land and water transport. Brisbane City Council then installed a large interpretation sign overlooking the quarry and its remnant structures such as boiler, rail lines and loading platforms. I provided photographs and historical information for this signage, conducted tours of the quarry for the public and school groups, and wrote a tour guide.
