Hands up, who has been to Hanging Rock before?
Truth to be told I lived in Melbourne for 4 years before I ever heard about it. Shame on me, right!?
To most of us (yes it’s us, ’cause I’ve finally been there a couple of month ago!) Hanging Rock is known for its concerts, spas or picnics. But now you can enjoy more than just a picnic at Hanging Rock, a special craft and produce market will take place on October 26th at this well known tourism icon.
The Hanging Rock Craft Market
The Hanging Rock Craft Market will have an excellent variety of both local and regional stalls offering quality Australian Made products, delicious gourmet foods and fresh home-grown produce. Combine your visit to the Hanging Rock Craft Market with a scenery walk, a picnic with your family or a little photo tour – it’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
On market days, visitors enjoy half price entry into Hanging Rock at $5 per car (normally $10). Reasonable entry fees are applicable as the Reserve receives no state or local government operational funding. 100% of all income received at the Reserve is used for its continued maintenance, development and care.
How will you get to the hanging Rock Craft Market
The Macdeon Ranges is less than an hour’s drive from Melbourne along the Calder Freeway and only half that time from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport. Hanging Rock is easily accessed from the A79 Calder Freeway which passes by on the eastern side of Woodend or via Mt Macedon or from the M31 Hume Highway by turning off at Kilmore and travelling through Lancefield, or alternatively from Wallan via Romsey.
Sunday 27 October 2013, 10am to 3pm
Please note that portable BBQ’s are not permitted in the Reserve on this day.
