    There is:
    Walking tracks that weave in and out amongst boulders (people do get lost!)
    the racecourse (likely to be dusty and dry)
    Hanging Rock Picnic cafe
    a small car park
    Pleasant, but not spectacular picnic area.
    Oh, and tribute copies of Peter Wier's remastered film, "Picnic at Hanging Rock".

    Much loved as a half-way point for the infamous Bendigo Double Century bike ride in the 1980s (Melb-Bendigo-Melb/360km in two days). Where'd the $10 entry fee come from? I have not paid that when I rocked up on a mountain bike! Then we'll go east, young men!

    Meanwhile, in them thar hills:
    Toorongo River,12km outside Noojee would be just the thing for the rainforest and waterfall baggers amongst us (me!): cool, quiet and serene, the ferns arc politely over the rushing Toorongo, cascade down Toorongo Falls and leap over a giant log-jammed chasm to join their better known brethren in a furious torrent 10 metres away. I guarantee it is a pretty place and well worth the effort.

    Marc?

    Does anyone know which of the two places (Hanging Rock, Noojee) is likely to be less crowded by visitors?

    Joachim, Noojee has only had a smattering of campers and dribs and drabs of curious mums and dads day-trippers who have discovered it by accident by following the scenic road above the valley from Noojee (the only other route goes up and up to Baw Baw). The only signpost is "Toorongo River". Trout fisherkings can occasionally be seen, as too can noisy trail-bike riders. But you'll see the same thing in hitherto quiet places of the Otways. No place is sacred.

    Hanging Rock is popular with Sunday trippers from the city. Cyclists ride there from Woodend. Everybody wants to "picnic at Hanging Rock" and go nature walkabouts. Noojee/Toorongo River has my bet for serious photography without being poked and prodded by stickybeaks.

    A thought just flashed by: Wilsons Prom... I guess not...

    I'm very familiar with Toorongo; just a beautiful place. A couple of KM of creek/river to shoot (i.e. not in each others' pockets), cascades, falls, lyrebirds, etc.

    One thing to also consider is the Trestle bridge just before Noojee. Allows the Architecture shooters a chance to go bush as well!

    Tut, tut. You could always be imaginative and call up an Australian APUGers meet-n'-greeet in NZ!... Say at Milford Sound, or The Catlins. Suddenly, I've got an urge to jump ship and head over The Ditch....

    Hi Guys,

    I'd be keen to tag along too, if you can excuse the fact that I haven't actually been very active on Apug over the past... ummm... 'while'... I've got a job the day before, on the 17th, but all going well I should be good to make it up there on the Sunday. I may have missed it in skimming the posts, but has a time been proposed? ...or is it just in time for morning coffee break?
