“Senseless” vandalism of toilet block at Gooseberry Hill National Park slammed

VANDALS have damaged a toilet block at Statham’s Quarry in Gooseberry Hill National Park.

Staff from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions found the damage, believed to have been caused by a car, on November 11.

Department Perth Hills district manager Benson Todd said he was frustrated by the senseless destruction.

“Over the past year, this district has spent $30,000 on replacing damaged signs and gates, and removing graffiti,” he said.

“This senseless act of vandalism disadvantages everyone who uses the quarry.

“We will be working to fix the toilet as soon as possible.”

Mr Todd said climbers can use the quarry free of charge after making a booking with the department.

“In recent years, we have undertaken works to enable wheel chair abseiling, which provides a fantastic recreation opportunity for people with disabilities,” he said.

“The site is also very popular with school groups undertaking outdoor education and leadership activities.”

People with any information about the incident can call 9290 6100 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
