The wall appears to be a typical example of post and rail dry stone walls common in Melton Shire. It most likely dates from 1860's - 1870's. The wall may also provide a habitat for endangered Striped Legless Lizard.
Heritage Inventory Description

The wall is up to a meter in height and has a hedge and post and wire fence along its length. Land either side of the Government Rd is agricultural.
some sections are poor while the mid section is in a reasonable condition.
Archeological Potential: The Melton Shire Council has advised that the rock wall is located within a cultural landscape precinct (Western Highway Precinct)
