Commercial Sources of Stone
Australia has limited sources of quality commercial stone and marble, which are also non-renewables as such, although some types can be reprocessed*. What we do have is often of high quality, and includes: Uralla Granite, Warialda Marble, Bowral Trachyte, Kempsey Marble, Fernbrook Marble, Albury Granite and Sydney Sandstone.
Australia also imports marble and slate from Europe.
On-site or Near-site Stone-Sourcing by the Ethical Builder &/or Owner Builder
Having close or immediate access to the raw material for your building project is the best reason to be contemplating a stone-built or partial stone-built structure.
