A mid-sized, open-air quarry, often doubling as a barren desert environment.
Shrouded by bush and located close to the state motorway, the Horokiwi Quarry is one of Wellington’s biggest quarries.
It has three fixed processing plants, and the vertical beds consist of hard, fractured greywacke (light grey) intersected with thin layers of black argillite.
