The Altona Homestead in Melbourne is a must-visit destination for all history lovers. In fact, this is the oldest homestead nestled in the region – built back in 1842 on the designated areas of R.J. Logan Reserve.

Two of the first and most notable settlers of Altona, Alfred and Sarah, originally owned this beautiful property. Later, the Langhorne family revamped the homestead by using bluestone for the walls because of the frequent bush fire threats in the area.
