With ties to local legend William Hovell and rumours of Ned Kelly visitation, the property at elevation652 holds many stories. The property was founded by the Evans family in the mid-1800s. In 1982 Sarah Brockoff and David Heathcote built the house and started farming the property. In 2000 Winnie Jones began operating elevation652 as a premium Welsh Black Cattlestud. After planting our grape vines and operating the business for many years Winnie sold the property to Phil and Michelle Ross in 2017. When you come stay, ask one our lovely staff for a more in-depth history lesson!
