We're going to go for a picnic at Hanging Rock," they said, smiling knowingly. What is the significance of that? you say. Hanging Rock is shrouded by an air of mystery, with the tale of a group of girls disappearing on Valentines Day 1900, on a school picnic. The Rock provides the backdrop of this 1967 novel, as well as a subsequent 1975 film adaptation. You can find out more about the origins of Hanging Rock and more at the Discover Centre.
Finally, stop over at the cafe for tea or coffee. Or make your own lunch at the BBQ area, and play some footy on the spacious grassy lawns. Whilst in the area, you can visit the other wineries and natural attractions around the Macedon Ranges.

Hanging Rock Summit Walk sounds good - just a monumental pity that the Department responsible for the Sign cannot SPELL. The word is REPEL, and the activity REPELLING - certainly it is not and never has been Rapel or Rapelling. How much did sign cost? They should ask for a refund.
