The outlaw and gang leader Ned Kelly is an indelible part of Australian history and continues to arouse fascination. Just 15 minutes out of Wangaratta, visit the Ned Kelly Memorial Museum & Homestead, the Old Railway Station in the Glenrowan Heritage Siege Precinct, stopping at places connected to the events of June 1880 and the Ned Kelly gang siege with Melbourne troopers. Check out the original stationmaster’s house, the railway platform, and the site where Kelly was eventually captured. Many of the mature trees growing around Glenrowan were here in Kelly’s day, including ‘Kelly Copse’, where he tethered his horse. Innumerable ammunition rounds were fired, and original bullets may still be found, and see the Big Ned sculpture, a whopping six metres tall!
