Heritage

Until 1854 the 26 ha property which is now Horseshoe Bend Farm served as the Keilor Village Reserve. This meant it was used for grazing and by any travellers who were passing through the area.

From 1854 until the early 1900s the land was subdivided. In the early 1900s William O'Neil Jnr purchased the property and operated it as a dairy farm. After O'Neils death in the 1930s the farm was subdivided into smaller lots. These lots passed through the hands of various owners who used them as orchards and market gardens.

Horseshoe Bend Farm in Keilor, just 20 minutes away from Melbourne's CBD.

2012 - Horseshoe Bend Farm is currently closed while Parks Victoria are looking for a new operator and hopefully will re-open shortly.
