Artist's Description

The lower slopes of Hanging Rock are crowded with huge rock formations, trees, vegetation and tracks. In the early morning the sunlight filters through the foliage showing bright colours and shadows.

Hanging Rock is a long-extinct volcano, formed when lava blew through a vent in the earth about 6 million years ago, and now rises 105 metres on the surrounding plain. High soda content in the solid lava and the action of rainwater has created the unusual rock formations, known to geologists as soda trachyte.
A great location for walks to the top of the Rock, or walking trails around the park.

Hanging Rock. Macedon Ranges. Victoria. Australia.
