Hanging Rock (Woodend)




Hanging Rock is a rare volcanic formation located near the townships of Woodend & Mount Macedon in Victoria, Australia.

It is home of the Hanging Rock Cup & Races, and setting of the world renown novel & film Picnic at Hanging Rock. It is also home to various events and a wide array of native flora and fauna.

Said to be the best example of a volcanic plug or mamelon in the world. Since its formation, the mamelon has been exposed to considerable weathering and erosion, resulting in a conglomeration of unusual rock formations that can now be seen on the site.

Forgot your picnic basket? Hanging Rock Cafe is the answer with fresh country fare served daily. A great place to relax and take in the peaceful surrounding of the reserve, take you pick of the indoor dining room or the al fresco patio. Modern contemporary cuisine is served fresh daily, prepared by a local chef using local ingredients. Fully licensed. Bookings may be required on event days.
