Over looked by the picturesque Mt Fraser, Beveridge is a growing residential area only 40km from Melbourne. Located directly off the Hume Highway, Beveridge is known for its expansive grassy plains, and also as being the birthplace of notorious bushranger Ned Kelly.
History and Heritage
Beveridge was named after Andrew Beveridge, an early settler who went on to build the town's Hunter Tryst Inn in 1845.
Perhaps the most famous spot in town, and a definite must-see, is the Kelly farm, known as the birthplace of Ned Kelly, and the home where he spent his early years. Ned's father built the home in 1859, where it is still standing today. You can view the house as well as the Catholic Church that Ned attended school as part of the Ned Kelly Touring Route.
