The original Ned's Corner Homestead burnt down in the 1920's located c. 20 km (?) to the east. The modern homestead has operated at the current location until purchased by the Trust for Nature in 2002. The rubbish midden has evidence of collector's activities and a vehicle track indicates that one passes through the middle of it.
