DID YOU KNOW?

The Appleyard College (Werribee Mansion) is approximately 1 hours away from the Hanging Rock.

Production designer Jo Ford sourced antiques for the different sets from across Australia from private collections, antique societies and even a few garage sales. Jo and her team worked closely with the National Trust in Victoria when filming in some of Melbourne’s most historic landmarks.

Two crews filmed at Hanging Rock for five days with between 100-120 crew members at the site each day.

Local residents were featured as extras in a major street scene filmed over two days in the regional town of Clunes. Several tonnes of dirt covered the main street to create a 1900’s street complete with horse and carriages.

One of the big challenges for the actresses involved was wearing tight corsets and layers of petticoats in 40 degree heat. They mastered the challenge by straddling fans and throwing water over each other.

The Picnic Ground Scenes aren’t at Hanging Rock, but several kilometres away by this small, secluded lake surrounded by lush ferns and tall eucalypts. It’s 250m from the Carpark, or take the 2.5km looped Eco Trail from the picnic ground. Sanatorium Lake links to the 29km Macedon Ranges Walking Trail, so rambling and hiking options abound.

The Place were the the girls spend some time shortly after falling into a deepest sleep is the same Place that was used in Peter Weir`s Movie were Edith rests on a Log sayng: "Why can`t we just sit on this Log..."

The Place on the Hanging Rock where Mrs. Hester Appleyard jumps off the cliff at the End is the same Place that was used in Peter Weir`s Movie were Miranda, Marion and Irma looking down to the Picnic Ground after Miranda sayd: "Everything begins and ends exactly the right time and Place."
