Hanging Rock

Description

Hanging Rock is a gold mining village and also rock face on the Northern Tablelands, New South Wales, Australia. This former gold mining town is situated about 10 km south east of Nundle. The village is part of the Tamworth Regional Council district and Parry County. Hanging Rock’s geographical coordinates are 31° 29' 0" South, 151° 12' 0" East and the elevation is about 1100 m.

Hanging Rock was a small gold mining village in northern NSW and now consists of a few houses.  This is a popular place for gem fossicking where you may find sapphires, zircon, crystal and prase (A variety of Quartz) or maybe even pan for gold.  Sheba Dams are found just out of Hanging Rock and a number of people were camping around the water’s edge.  These dams were originally created to supply water to the gold mines, but are now used for fishing and swimming.

Of course we stopped for lunch so we could say we had a picnic at the Hanging Rock.
