Our national landmarks - Victorian Parliament House, Melbourne GPO and the Melbourne Town Hall have been built from the same sandstone formations that are quarried today in Layton Stone's quarry. This distinctive, warm, fine-grained sandstone has stood the test of time and will continue do so for many generations to come.
The soft warm colour, a reflection of our sunburnt country complements both traditional and modern architectural styles, lending a timeless quality where it is used.
