Aboriginal People This land was home to the Djab wurrung people for over 20,000 years.
Aboriginal people would have hunted, and seasonally lived on this open and sparsely vegetated land.
This would've also acted as a popular thoroughfare for the Djab wurrung moving from the mountains at Mount Cole/Langi Ghiran to the volcanic plains at Lake Bolac for eel hunting and across to the large wetlands at the base of Mount William at the Grampians to hunt brolga, magpie geese and swans.
The name "Langi Logan" is thought to be hybridised Aboriginal/European name. Generally "Langi" is an aboriginal name meaning "Home of". "Logan" is the name of station in the area.

Prior to 1862 Mr Fletcher built his mud hut and created a stone fence around the perimeter of this property.
Following the death of Mr Fletcher, the property was purchased by Will Hinchliffe.
After 150 years of continuous farming by the Hinchliffe family, the dynasty continues with the sixth generation of Will Hinchliffe's descendants farming at Glenlee Farm.
Today we're using regenerative farming practices to ensure the Hinchliffe's can farm for another 150 years.
The Glenlee Farm is where the rich alluvial gold fields meets the volcanic plains of South-west Victoria.
Parts of Glenlee Farm sit upon a basalt plateau, created when volcanic flows and ash filled the Ordovician and granite gullies below.
