Every weekend, more and more amateur detectives crawl over Hanging
Rock eager to unravel one of Australia’s biggest mysteries. They are
curious of the weird rock formation and the story behind it. But those
stories are just myth and need not to be afraid of. Joan Lindsay has one
of the world’s famous “Hanging Rock Story” captured in a film that leads
to disturbed the imagination of millions of people.
Hanging Rock is a mamelon, a rare pile of solidified lava forced
through the earth’s surface million years ago. Today, “hanging Rock”
became famous for its maze of chasms, tunnels, caves, crevices and
boulders that attracts inquisitive walkers. The rock scramble to the top
along the “Pinnacles” track from the picnic area is short and relatively
easy, but be careful it’s not a good idea for the children to get near
the cliff edges.
- Excellent family walk but stay close to and watch the kids near
the cliff edges. 2km (1.5hrs return with exploration).
