Last weekend I went to Hanging Rock, a popular weekend destination for Melbournites, located close to the Macedon Ranges. It’s a geological site over 6 million years old called a mamelon, created by stiff lava flowing out of a small vent and stacking to create a hill with vertical rocks.
It’s only an hour train ride from Melbourne, although you do have to take a taxi or hitchhike to where it is from the train station. I went with my new Israeli friends Michal and Rani and my partner James. It was a fun day outing, nice to get out of this city and climb on some rocks outside.
These pretty birds were everywhere!
This kangaroo was so chill!
Yarn graffiti is taking off in Melbourne

This was a project by the elementary school
It was letting the kids pet it
Bonus photo: art installation in the city, projecting moving images onto the side of buildings.
Thanks to the rock who took this picture
Michal and Rani are also living in Melbourne. Rani is going to school and Michal is working.
