Collie’s quarry hosts major WA food festival

Wellington Dam Quarry in Collie is set to be a vital part of an upcoming Western Australian food festival.

Feast at the Quarry is set to arrive in Collie’s Wellington Dam Quarry in October for two nights of food and live music.

The granite quarry was the centre of industrial activity during construction of Wellington Dam in the 1930s. It is now used for abseiling and rock climbing.

The Quarry’s Table – A Fine Dining Experience is a key attraction with live music from Adam Hall and the Velvet Playboys.

Chef Scott Hallsworth oversees delivering the multi-course menu with a Japanese influence for the night. Hallsworth was raised in Collie before becoming a renowned chef at Nobu London.

“It’s a real privilege to be returning home to cook at the Feast at the Quarry this October,” he said.

“Not only did my grandfather work on the building of the dam wall, but I spent countless summers swimming and barbecuing there, too. I’m incredibly excited and can’t wait to be there.”

A cocktail-style event will inspire the Sunday event with live music from Chaos and Harmony, Kate Hindle, and Scarlet’s Way. Hallsworth oversees curating that menu as well.

The event takes place from October 14-15.
