If you’ve read any of the books I’ve mentioned please let me know what you think of them and if you’d recommend them to me. Also question, can you borrow books from the state library online or something? because I live in regional Victoria and would love to be able to borrow books from the library to read.

I read Picnic At Hanging Rock without knowing about the infamously open-ended conclusion, and was SO frustrated by it. I still really enjoyed reading the book, though, because the atmosphere is brilliantly written, and there's a lot of suspense. Just don't count on there being answers for everything or anything...
Also, found this page on the State Library website that might be useful - https://www.slv.vic.gov.au/search-discover/free-journals-databases-ebooks

Thankyou!! I've been to hanging rock heaps and walked up and down it a few times its really pretty and the mystery is so intriguing and have always wanted to read the story about it because it's partially true as well

I hope you enjoy it! And it doesn't make you too freaked out to visit Hanging Rock again. Heheh.
