Great walk to do with kids and visit the hanging rock. Also great views over the countryside. Heritage centre worth a visit with information on flora and fauna and also of course on the famous movie!

So picturesque, nature everywhere, birds, kookaburras, rosellas, kangaroos, lovely walking tracks, lake, beautiful picnic spots and shelters, free electric barbecues, great for all ages. You can climb the Rock for spectacular views. This is a truly spectacular place.

What an amazing drive from Melbourne. I'm surprised not many people are aware of this place. Not just the hanging rock but the surrounding area is well maintained and beautiful. The views from above is just breathtaking. Well worth the climb up the rock.

This is a good place to visit but be prepared to do some serious mountain goat climbing to get to the best views. There is a good learning centre there, picnic and toilet facilities available.

I had never considered stopping here but damn am I glad we did! The hike is short but quite steep, and definitely worth it! The views once you get to the top are nothing short of breathtaking!

There is a caravan park at Macedon. Only a 10-15 minute drive from hanging rock. I haven't stayed there so can't comment on it. The Macedon area is a very pretty part of Victoria. Much wildlife around if that's your thing... More
