What a great place to visit, the walk to the summit is pretty easy (although quite steep at times) and once there, there are so many lookouts. Take the time to find each points of interest, it makes for a fun day and it'll ensure you get to see the many angles there are to see! We returned the following day to get some better photos (the 1st day was cloudy) and still managed to see parts we didn't see the 1st day. Tip for the people who want to enjoy the scenery and ambiance of the reserve... Get there early before the bus loads of families with their screaming kids...lol 😄😄

Great to be out and about in regional Victoria over these summer holidays - finally! Climbed Hanging Rock with friends, ate at RedBeard bakery in Trentham, dined at Harvest Bendigo before seeing the Contemporary Indigenous Fashion exhibition PIINPI and the Paul Guest Prize at the Bendigo Art Gallery, seeing a film at Castlemaine's Theatre Royal and bathing at in Hepburn Springs.

Set out for a drive to Woodend. Saw the sign to Hanging Rock and turned right instead. It had been years since we last walked around there. We didn’t remember paying $10 a car ( at the cafe before you exit) but it’s worth the upkeep of the facilities. Beautiful place. 3 different walks available. Attempted the summit. Quite a few places along the way to divert off the track and take in the views. A beautiful place for a hike with lots of space and good facilities. Great for families, groups and couples.

Two things to note when planning a visit - pick a cooler, non-windy day & not during peak periods - holidays & weekends. Summit is now open but Discovery centre is not. $10 per car & $4 per pedestrian. If you must visit during peak season - get in & out early...A few hours at least for the climb esp. to enjoy the views at the summit. Assess your fitness by reading the info boards. Bitumen trail steep walk up but not to Summit. Parents seem to manage with a pram/stroller. Wear shoes with good grip. Kids just love it & manage with ease but adults have to keep up & keep an eye on them! The actual Hanging Rock is signposted. There is the base walk which we did not do on 28 Dec (yes public hol) as the crowds were simply off putting. Picnic haven! Bbq - must pay to operate & tables are there but not enough on a busy day. Toilets at base - clean enough. Cafe is simply too crowded for takeaway by noon - it is a long wait. Pay for parking at ticket machine near Cafe. QR code sign in on entry but no one is checking this. Hardly saw a park ranger! Rock formations are stunning - take your time to explore the various paths - it will lead to signposted fabulous vistas.

With the sun out we did the summit walk then the base walk. Great views at the top but disappointing you can’t go to the peak due to Covid restrictions. If you do the base walk (flat and easy) follow the yellow arrows, you will see more.
