Gosford Quarries is proud to be the first company to send a 1.9m Solid Sandstone statue of Australia's first saint; St Mary of the Cross Mackillop to the Middle East.  

This life size statue was custom crafted using the finest Australian Sandstone; The Sydney Yellow Block which Gosford Quarries extracted from George St in Sydney's CBD earlier this year. 

This project has taken our expert team meticulous hours in programming the CNC technology as well as hours of skilled craftsmanship from our banker stonemasons who gave the statue the finishing touches.

The statue is a gift to the people of Zgarta Tgreen, a small Village in the North of Lebanon to celebrate the grand opening of the multi-million dollar St George Cathedral on the 28th September 2014. The Statue now adorns the beautiful gardens of the Cathedral and is a tribute to Australia's contribution to this great cathedral.
