Feel the Mystery
If there’s one place you can’t NOT see when visiting Macedon, it would have to be Hanging Rock.
Shrouded in mystery thanks to the 1967 Joan Lindsay novel – Picnic at Hanging Rock that was later adapted to a movie, the rock formations do tend to offer a somewhat eerie or mysterious atmosphere.
But leave all that behind and you will find a stunning natural rock formation that’s ripe for climbing and exploring along with some of the most breathtaking scenery in the region. Enjoy a picnic (if you dare) at the base of the rock before exploring all the nooks and crannies in front of you (if you dare).
But it’s not just a rock formation, there are playgrounds, a race course, sports ovals, gift shop and café.
The area also has played host to some of the most famous rock acts including the Rolling Stones, Bruce Sprinsteen and more recently Elton John.
Just one hint, don’t eat or drinks so much that you need to take an afternoon nap. You just never know what might happen while you’re sleeping…..otherwise ENJOY!
