Glenrowan is a lovely little town right in the middle of Kelly country. This park is just the right place to stay to soak up the history. Ned Kellys last stand was playedout here in the town, at the Anne Jones inn in June 1880. The siege site is well marked and so is the place of Neds capture. He did not go down without a fight, he suffered no less than 28 gun shot wounds he recieved from the police. The railway station has been re built where Ned was held while the siege ended with the burning of the inn. The bend in the railway line can be seen to the North if you stand on the bridge, this is the site that the tracks were ripped up to derail the police train. There are shops to buy all your Kelly trinkets and they house some interesting artifacts from the kelly era. They also have a great collection of photos. There is also a replica of the Kelly hut that once stood at Greta. The site of the original hut is on private propery and can not be accessed. All that remains is one lonely brick chimney added to the hut after Ned died. The property belongs to Kelly decendants. The Greta cemetery is where Neds mother, two sisters, two brothers and Tom Llloyd are all burried in unmarked graves. Also Steve Hart, Kelly gang member is burried there too.Glenrowan is deffinately worth a visit.
I loved the Glenrowan Tourist Park, it is so unique and congratulations to the owners. I cant wait
to take my granchildren there and have an excuse to get into the beautiful pool amongst the gum trees.
Just so peaceful with lots to do close by if you chose.
