Ned Kelly’s legendary bushranging exploits came to their bloody end in Glenrowan in 1880. The story of Kelly and his gang has become an industry in this one-street town; you can’t drive through Glenrowan without being confronted by the legend and the accompanying memorabilia, including a 2m armour-clad statue. The main sites of his capture are signposted, so pick up a walking map and follow the trail.
Ned Kelly’s Last Stand is an animated theatre where Kelly’s story is told by a cast of animatronic characters, and culminates in a smoky shoot-out and Kelly’s hanging (it may be too scary for young children). It's at the Glenrowan Tourist Centre.
Kate's Cottage is a museum of sorts, with Kelly-related memorabilia and artefacts gathered from all over the district, plus a replica of the Kelly home.
