Is it fenced in now?

Mostly but there is no gate on the track at the top of the quarry. I have not walked right around the fence , so I don't know if there are other openings.

I was at Mugga Mugga 2 days ago and had another look at the fence. There are other places where there are wide gaps in the fencing and areas where a goat could easily get under a fence. This article from Canberra times suggests goats may have been there for some time:

My photos of Apr 16 and Jan 17 were further north than this sighting so don't form a timeline. There is only the one goat as far as I know. It will have a good view of the filling in of the quarry.
