Straw's Lane, Hanging Rock

After our picnic and walk at Hanging Rock we drove a short way to Straw's Lane.

J and I have been here many years ago but we thought it would be fun to take the family and let them try it out.

We started off in Kady's little Festiva first and here are the results. All three cars had a go. Lots of fun. We put the cars in neutral and the rolled up the hill gaining speed the higher up the hill they got.

A true optical illusion. We used a spirit level and the hill is really the opposite to what you think it is. When rolling uphill you are in fact rolling downhill.

We also used a softdrink can to try this out as well.
