Walk about the sign-posted Glenrowan Heritage Siege Precinct to discover or learn more of the real story of Ned Kelly and his gang, decide for yourself if he was a “hero” or a “villain”.
See the site of Anne Jones’ Glenrowan Inn, the Police Shelter Site and the place of Ned’s capture.
Visit a replica of the Kelly homestead, visit the local blacksmith and re-live the siege at the animated theatre
Two private museums In Glenrowan exhibit numerous artifacts and relics from the past. Visit the near-by Benalla Costume and Pioneer Gallery to see the actual blood-stained green sash worn by Kelly under his armour during The Last Stand in Glenrowan and where you can see the portable cell where Ned Kelly was once imprisoned.
It is a short drive to Greta to visit the cemetery where Ned Kelly’s remains were finally laid to rest in an unmarked grave. It is a slightly longer drive to experience the eerie atmosphere of Stringybark Creek.
On a lighter note, “legend has it that Ned Kelly assisted the Bailey family to plant their first grapevines! ” at what is now Baileys of Glenrowan vineyard. (http://www.visitwangaratta.com.au)
