Dundas Valley Quarry Tramway?


BM
 

I have been asked by a colleague to post a request for information regarding
the origins of Tramway Street in Denistone. A Wikipedia article on Dundas
Valley states that 'Thomas Mitchell' opened a quarry on the site that now
known as Sir Thomas Mitchell Reserve in 1832 and this quarry supplied blue
metal for road making into the 20th century. The metal was quarried by
convicts and transported to Ermington Wharf from where is was transported to
Sydney.

There is no information on how the stone was carried from the quarry to the
wharf. Does the Tramway Street at Denistone have anything to do with the
means of transport from this quarry?

Hi Bob,

There was a message series starting on 24 April this year regarding 'Pennant Hills Wharf'.
Have a look at that one & the following messages.
