Access to quarry car park on Stone Hut track would be handy in that it frees up a bit of road walking for some of the more interesting mooching around stuff.
Yes you can drive to the quarry to park.
If you want to avoid excessive walking on 4WD tracks, then you can drive another 400m up the hill, but don't go beyond the first big puddle.
However, our group found the track in poor condition (31 December 2018), with quite a few trees fallen, and sometimes it was hard to get over them, or get round them without losing the track.
We were trying to go up to Stone Hut, but gave up about 1/3 the way up. However, our group of four included 2 over 70, and 2 with bad knees, so a fit group would be OK.
So we went along the Bastion Cascades track to the second creek crossing and found fallen trees there, but generally smaller, so less of a problem.
