Kelly's last stand - Glenrown 1880

Born at Beveridge, Victoria in 1854 the third child of an impoverished family of Irish settlers, Ned Kelly spent most of his short life in North Eastern Victoria with the family moving to Avenel and finally Greta, between Benalla and Wangaratta.

It was from Greta that he embarked upon his notorious career.

Embracing brawling, horse stealing, bank robbery, and the murder of police - for which he was eventually hanged at the Melbourne Jail on 11 November 1880 - following his capture at 'the siege at Glenrowan'.

Admired for his courage, enormous stamina, boundless initiative, leadership qualities, loyalty, and republican ideals - but vilified for his lawlessness - Ned Kelly continues to this day as an Australian enigma. - Maybe we shall never decide!
