All eternal things and you
Hanging Rock, Australia, photographed by Richard Daintree in 1858
Aside from being the location of the haunting, mysterious novel and film Picnic at Hanging Rock, strange things have been known to happen there throughout its history. During the shooting of Peter Weir’s film several clocks and watches did actually stop working just like in the story; nearby there is a road called Straws Lane, where cars will roll uphill; and in recent times on the Rock itself a girl got lost and was later found pacing in circles round a stone called the Saddle, scared and bewildered.
