Statement of significance:

This quarry has now been filled by a freestanding highrise building. It is at the base of the North Bondi cliffs, well below the level of Military Road and on the level of Oakes Place, through which it is reached. It is quite likely to have been part of the Loveridge and Hudson quarry recorded as being at "the east end" of Clyde Street in the 1950's.
