The disappearance of several schoolgirls while visiting Hanging Rock in 1900 is one of Australia's enduring mysteries. Joan Lindsay's chilling account, Picnic at Hanging Rock was immortalized in Peter Weir's classic 1975 film of the same name. Visit the eerie granite spires at your peril!
- The Macedon wine region begins just outside Melbourne and continues up into the rolling hills of the Macedon Ranges and Kyneton. Some of Victoria's most picturesque wineries, producing superb cool climate wines, sit amongst historic homesteads, beautiful cultivated gardens, and rugged bushland. In the heart of this spectacular scenery, you will find Hanging Rock Winery a specialised producer of premium sparkling wine, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet/Merlot. The Macedon premium sparkling is regarded as one of the best in the country. Visitors can sample wines whilst looking out at the famous Hanging Rock itself. For those who wish to make their visit more than just a day trip, there is Dryden's Run a bed and breakfast winery retreat. This luxury accommodation is situated at the winery in secluded bushland.
