Hester's three star pupils and a governess have disappeared. Led by dogged Sergeant Bumpher, local men search for the missing ladies. Not a trace to be found. Faced with a mystery, the locals resort to speculation. Has something supernatural befallen the young ladies? Or has a human outrage occurred? The last person to see the girls at the Rock was aristocratic young Englishman, the Honourable Michael Fitzhubert. Mike has recently arrived in the colony, trailing a discreet hint of scandal. The revelation that he has Miranda's stocking in his pocket indicates a special fascination with the missing girl, but Mike is contemptuously dismissive of Bumpher's insinuation that his voyage to Australia was motivated by anything improper. Hester tries to contain mounting hysteria among her pupils by putting the college into lockdown. She believes the young orphan, Sara, obsessively devoted to Miranda, knows something about the disappearance. But Sara's loyalty to Miranda cannot be breached. Two strange riders were seen at the picnic ground. Are they men from Hester's past, attempting to ruin her? What is the missing governess's shocking secret revealed in an ancient letter from her estranged Hebridean father? As the days pass and the mystery remains unsolved, tensions increase to breaking point. When the search is finally abandoned, Mike feels compelled to return to Hanging Rock, where he spends a dark night with the ghosts of his own past. Then, under the searing Australian sun, he searches for redemption, joined belatedly by his uncle's coachman Albert - with whom he has forged a strong bond. Delirious Mike points up the Rock to where Albert finds one of the missing girls lying exposed to the elements. But is she dead or alive...?

In the final decade of the 19th century, Hester Appleyard - a beautiful, mysterious widow - arrives in Macedon, Australia. She pays cash for the local white elephant - a formal mansion isolated out in the bush. Here, she establishes a school for young ladies. Six years later, Appleyard College is a success. A bastion of Victorian England, ruled with an iron fist by its enigmatic headmistress. But something haunts Hester. Is it the bush - dangerous and untamed? Or is it her own secret past? Appleyard College has three star pupils. Sophisticated Irma, a Rothschild heiress. Whip-smart Marion, daughter of a High Court Justice. And rebellious tomboy Miranda, a cattle-station princess. Their friendship ignites the magical and dangerous energy of adolescence. They resist the edicts of society. Confronted by the unwelcome advances of a young soldier headed for the Boer War, Miranda impales his foot with a pitchfork, earning her headmistress's contempt for her lack of self-regard. But the girls have already convinced Hester to allow a visit to the local landmark. And so, as she punishes devoted young orphan Sara for Miranda's recklessness by keeping her back from the outing, and Miranda retaliates by showing the headmistress an unseen object which clearly reveals some unwelcome truth, on Saint Valentine's Day, 1900, the Appleyard girls and governesses go on a picnic, to Hanging Rock. And there, in the strange brooding landscape, something unthinkable happens...
