Discover The True Beauty Of Australia – Hanging Rock, VIC

Collaboration with STRUTHer Lauren Fowler


Hanging Rock (also known as Mount Diogenes, Dryden's Rock) is located near the townships of Woodend and Mount Macedon in central Victoria, Australia, 76 km northwest of Melbourne.


Hanging Rock, a former volcano about 718m above sea level, is one of the best examples of a volcanic plug or mamelon in the world. It has been exposed to considerable weathering and erosion, resulting in a conglomeration of unusual rock formations.


All year round, Hanging Rock provides a stunning backdrop for exciting and colourful events, including the famous Hanging Rock picnic races on New Years Day and Australia Day, car displays, craft markets, fun runs and concerts.


Hanging Rock is about discovery, and the Hanging Rock Discovery Centre is the perfect place to start. Hands-on interpretive displays and informative panels provide fascinating background on the history, mystery and geology of the Rock.


The walk to the summit of Hanging Rock is a highlight where visitors can enjoy the spectacular views and explore unique rock formations.


So remember to visit this place next time you're in Victoria!
