Hanging Rock Cafe

Welcome to the Hanging Rock Cafe

When you visit the Macedon Ranges a visit to Hanging Rock is a must.

Our cafe is nestled among the trees at the base of the world-famous Hanging Rock, right inside the reserve. You can dine inside, al fresco on our deck, or take away a snack and coffee to spend your time exploring. We are open 7 days, from 10am to 4pm weekdays and until 5.00 pm weekends. We serve coffee, cold drinks, hearty, house made meals and snacks. (NOTE: We are closed on Tuesdays over winter 5th May-25th August.)

We are the only eatery available within the Hanging Rock Reserve so you might like to book with us to make sure you get a seat.

We are also fully Licensed and stock Hanging Rock Winery Wines and Bubbles, Holgates Beer and Darraweit Valley Cider.

This is  a stunning and unique venue for a function. Get in touch with us to discuss your event needs.

Explore the Hanging Rock and the grounds, check out the Discovery Centre and make sure you drop in. We look forward to catching up with you at the Hanging Rock Cafe!
