The landform of Hanging Rock has provided a rich trove of images for artists, novelists and film-makers. Until now however, the history of Hanging Rock has never been properly told. This publication fills that gap. The stories of traditional owners, Hanging Rock’s geology, flora and fauna, European imagining of this strange place, and farming and leisure uses of Hanging Rock remain obscure. The Rock has had a profound impact on Australian cultural identity. This is a story which needed to be researched and told. Be one of the first to own this fascinating story – pre-order your copy of Hanging Rock – A History today.

[A] fine book that documents its geological rarity and its cultural significance to indigenous, white and other hued Australians – Phillip Adams in The Weekend Australian Magazine, 23 September 2017
