The series, which stars Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer, was shot early in 2017 in Australia.

Here’s where the majority of filming took place:

Mount Diogenes

Mount Diogenes – AKA Hanging Rock – is a popular tourist attraction that’s home to concerts, horse races, and camping space. It’s located 44 miles outside of Melbourne, Australia’s second-largest city.

It’s sacred to Aboriginal people, and has been popular with tourists since the 19th century.

It’s a key location for the series, and became famous when Joan Lindsay’s story was published in 1967.

And it’s not just one giant rock – due to years of rough weather patterns and significant erosion, it has become a series of rocks protruding in a bunch of clusters.

It’s also a popular venue for concerts, horse racing and camping.
