"the site of bushranger Ned Kelly's last stand" Glenrowan by Kate-Me

Glenrowan Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 9 photos

The small town of Glenrowan is located in north east Victoria, on the highway between Melbourne and Sydney.

Tiny it may be, but also very famous, being the site of legendary Bushranger Ned Kelly's last stand on June 28, 1880 - and as such, almost everything in town is devoted to him.
Ned was Australia's most & infamous bushranger in history, with his own homemade suit of armour (see pic 2).

And here's a giant model of Ned Kelly Himself, wearing his trademark suit of armour.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:An entire town devoted to the life & history of Ned Kelly
  • Cons:Everything is Ned Kelly....
  • In a nutshell:Kelly Town! Great if you want to sink deep into the stories & legends
