Information

From Curran Curran waterhole it is another 40 km of sandy, overgrown track to the west under you will meet the ends of a couple of big Sandhill’s and be confronted with an expansive, rugged red range. The rocky ridges just seemed to emerge from the sands dunes. To reach this point you will have crossed an impressively wide sandy watercourse nearly 100 metres wide in places .

Hanging Rock is actually a pillar of sandstone some 30, metres high atop a scree slope of equal height. It is quite impressive and the “Hanging Rock” is actually on the eastern face where a large section has fallen away from underneath the higher sections of rock leaving it jutting out unsupported.

Perhaps you might spend time climbing about the base and into the large cavern formed by the rocks splitting on its eastern face. The views are excellent of the surrounding countryside but it would be stupidity to climb the rocky face to the top. A 30-metre drop is a good way to ruin a holiday! To the south heads a track that leads eventually to Meeting gorge and the Tchukardine Pool.
