Vickers Rock Collection Field Trip & BBQ lunch – Wednesday 13 July

A trip to New Plymouth would not be complete without a visit to the late Russell Vickers Rock Collection.  Russell was a great collector and amassed an impressive collection over his lifetime, this collection is now looked after by his daughter Sandra who welcomes the QuarryNZ delegates to the property.  With collections in the house, garage and outside there will be plenty to take in as well as a walk through the native bush grove.  Russell’s collection includes rare rocks imported from all around the world, blown Stainless Steel spheres, Grand Canyon 225-million-year-old piece of wood petrified into rock, photo display of early 1900 York Road Quarry and details of the train track that ran into the National Park plus much more.  After the field trip we head back to TSB Stadium for a BBQ lunch in the Exhibition area before the IOQ and AQA AGMs.
