Picnic at Hanging Rock is an Australian historical fiction novel by Joan Lindsay. Picnic At Hanging Rock has long been shrouded in mystery. Set in 1900, it is about a group of female students at an Australian girls’ boarding school who vanish at Hanging Rock while on a Valentine’s Day picnic, and the effects the disappearances have on the school and local community. But is the plot—an eerie re-telling of a tragic event—based on a true story? Some say yes, some say no.

Cost: $135.00


Great relaxing day tour from Melbourne. We took a day tour to Daylesford and it was really nice and relaxing, our guide Mr. Walter is also very kind and patient. We really enjoyed the trip and I would definitely recommend Around and About Tours to everyone 🙂
