GLENROWAN.. NED KELLY'S NEMESIS..

GLENROWAN..Just off the main highway 220 kilometers from Melbourne on the main Melbourne Sydney Highway is the town of Glenrowan made famous by The notorious outlaw and highwayman Ned Kelly ..as it was here that he made his last stand in a violent "shootout" at the Glenrowan Inn with the police and ended with the death of all the gang except Ned ..Ned Kelly was later tried and hanged for the murder previously of Constable Thomas Lonigan at Stringybark Creek..he was hanged on the 11th of November 1880 in Melbourne Gaol... an Australian folk law hero..his legend lives on and is just so apparent when walking around this town....it is all Ned Kelly...I really liked all the painted wooden figures at the Glenrowan Railway Station and around town of police ...

GLENROWAN...VICTORIA.. IT'S ALL NED KELLY

GLENROWAN...The big Ned Kelly in all his armour that he wore when taking on the Victorian police at the Glenrowan Inn..
