  Better than a quarry!
by iandsmith

Fletcher Jones is a noted Australian clothing manufacturer whose headquarters are in Warrnambool. Normally clothing factories aren't much to look at but, thanks to the foresight of one Leslie (Darby) Boucher, the front of the premises are a standout attraction in Warrnambool.
From 1947 to1964 she transformed three unsightly quarries in what you see today and it is literally a living memorial to her dedication to the task.
They are not expansive but a wander through them (as distinct from just driving past in your car) is, if you like this sort of thing, very rewarding.
