Location: Homebush Bay Brick Pit Ring

The old Homebush brickpit is a part of Sydney Olympic Park. For over 100 years, the brickpit was a source of materials for Sydney’s buildings —sandstone and shale were quarried and clay was removed to make 3000 million bricks. The sandstone and shale were formed over 200 million years ago. Sand and fine clay were deposited by a large river and then compressed and changed into rock when they were buried by more deposition.
The brickpit was going to be made into the tennis stadium for the Sydney Olympic Games. However,the Green and Golden Bell Frog, an endangered amphibian from New SouthWales andVictoria,was found in the brickpit and so the tennis courts were built in a different part of Olympic Park. After the Olympic Games,the brickpit was changed to help Green and Golden Bell Frogs live and reproduce. Several freshwater ponds and rock shelters were built, and grasses and reeds were planted to provide extra habitats for the frogs. There are now over 700 bell frogs living in the brickpit.
