Hanging Rock – recognition of an icon

Hanging Rock is a local and international icon of immense cultural, geological and environmental significance. As part of the traditional land of the Kulin nation it has formed part of human experience for thousands of years. While enjoying a colourful colonial history, it is through artistic endeavor, particularly literature and film, that its modern history is most significant.

Hanging Rock was originally afforded heritage protection through its listing on the federal Register of the National Estate, but lost its registration in 2003 during heritage reforms. It has not enjoyed formal heritage recognition for the past 11 years.

In February 2014 the Hanging Rock Action Group nominated the Hanging Rock Precinct (including the East Paddock) for listing on the Victorian Heritage Register, which lists the state’s most significant heritage sites.

We have engaged a consultant to give this nomination the best possible hope of success. The consultant is undertaking a lengthy and detailed evaluation of the Hanging Rock Precinct, including a literature review, fieldwork, assessment, and the heritage nomination itself. All money raised here goes directly to funding the Heritage nomination process.

Heritage listing is a positive opportunity to help bring the Hanging Rock Precinct the respect, recognition and a level of protection it has long deserved. Please help support Hanging Rock’s nomination to the Victorian Heritage Register.

Alternative donation options (including bank deposit and cheque) are on our donate page.
