I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.

Shop in Ned Kelly Country
Glenrowan is well known for the infamous bushranger Ned Kelly but there is more to Glenrowan than the Kelly Gang.

Glenrowan is about 240 kms north-east of Melbourne and the drive takes about 2 ½ hours. Located between Benalla and Wangaratta, Glenrowan is just off the Hume Highway and a great place to stretch your legs and let the kids burn off energy at the playground.

Not big enough to stay in but a handy item to take travelling.

There is also accommodation that you could base yourself to explore the region.
