about us

our history

Where we started

In 1970 Sam and Frank Marino purchased a sugar cane farm in West Cairns that included a hill that seemed unusable. That was until 1973 when the brothers came up with the idea to apply for a quarry permit. Over 40 years later the quarry has now seen three Marino generations pick up the tools.

At Marino Quarry we are proud to be a family owned and operated business. It’s fair to say that crusher dust flows through our veins.

Why us


We know the industry inside and out and over the years we have been trusted to supply product for many important Cairns projects, including:

  • Cairns International Airport runway extension and access road
  • Captain Cook Highway Smithfield/Northern Beaches upgrade
  • Cairns Railway Goods Yard
  • Pier Car Park
  • Cairns Base Hospital upgrade
  • Various school grounds and suburb sub-divisions
  • Many civil construction company works
