When asked to name five Australian films, from any time, many people include Picnic at Hanging Rock in their list. A key factor in its enduring appeal is its plot – the mysterious disappearance of several schoolgirls and their teacher is never solved.

A critical and popular success, it helped establish Peter Weir’s international reputation and Australia’s place in world cinema. We’re sharing rare videos, costumes, props, interviews, music, posters, photographs, scripts and production documents from our collection.

This collection complements our Picnic at Hanging Rock online exhibition.
