Carlsruhe was initially a sheep run established in August 1837 by Charles Hotson Ebden. Carlsruhe was the first rural property north of the Port Phillip settlement. It was named after Karlsruhe, Germany, where Charles Hotson Ebden received part of his education. Carlsruhe has a graveyard that has many tombstones dating back to the 19th century.
