Historically, when using the term Bluestone in Australia we’re referring to one of two things. In Victoria, we’re often referring to the type of Basalt which has been quarried in the state since the 1850’s. In South Australia, however, the word Bluestone is often synonymous with the locally quarried Slates such as Kanmantoo Bluestone, Adelaide Hills Bluestone or Wistow Bluestone.
Following the rise in popularity of Victorian Basalt over the last few years, it’s now usually safe to assume that when someone is speaking of Bluestone they’re actually referring to Basalt – whether Australian or imported. This Bluestone has been one of the most popular paving and building products in Australia for over 100 years and continues to be one of the most widely used natural stones in the landscape – both residential and commercial.

We select only A Grade raw material and check each and every piece of stone before it’s packaged for our customers.

In addition to our standard Sawn texture we can also apply a number of alternative finishes to our Bluestones. Each of these unique finishes brings it’s own personality to the stone, highlighting different colours and adding elements of depth and tone.
Bluestone Cobblestones are one of our most popular paving choices for driveways and feature pavers.
