The Island Quarry Arts & Eco Centre is Byron Bay’s most innovative and exciting community project. Our vision is to create a model for sustainable living through environmental, economic and social activity. We aim to demonstrate environmentally sustainable practices whilst protecting and enhancing the natural and scenic values. Island Quarry is fostering local arts, environment, new industries and sustainable technologies, whilst recognising and promoting valuable cultural heritage that relates to our region. In turn a unique and diverse local culture will be developed. Together, our community shares this common vision and is engaged in an ambitious enterprise, the Island Quarry, otherwise known as “IQ”.
The Island Quarry is made up of its members, friends and volunteers from our local community. Our Centre is managed by a community-based association, the Island Quarry Incorporated, which has been appointed the Trustee.
