Hanging Rock


Hanging Rock is the physical result of a volcanic eruption, dating back to the Late Miocene age (about 6 million years). It is a prominent, culturally significant landmark for three Aboriginal Traditional Owner groups – the Woi Wurrung (Wurundjeri), the Djaara and the Taungurung. Archaeological evidence found at Hanging Rock demonstrates Aboriginal use and occupation of the place for at least 10,000 years.

The reserve is now a popular destination, attracting visitors to enjoy the nature environment and surrounds, as well as hosting a range of events.
