Optical illusions are a lot of fun. Another one involving car is at Straws Lane near Woodend where you put your car in neutral and it feels like you are rolling up a hill. Locals say it is the magical pull of Hanging Rock.
It's very eerie but presumably, it is an optical illusion based on conflicting lines in the landscape.
