The kids enjoying the Ned Kelly statue


If you love Ned Kelly, old country towns, going back in time, and history then you will love visiting the old town of Glenrowan, the town that Ned Kelly was captured. Glenrowan has a lovely tourist centre with a little walk around museum with lots of information about Ned Kelly.

There are Australian and Ned Kelly souvenirs available at the gift shop that you can purchase, so you can take the Ned Kelly history with you home. Children will love seeing the historic events, and boys will be particularly interested in Ned Kelly's armour. My boys, and my sister in law's children were fascinated with the Ned Kelly statues and armour.

There is a live 40 minute show with computerised robots which you can go and see. It runs from between 9:30am - 4:30pm every day. We did not get to go to this, but I'm sure it would have been absolutely thrilling. The Glenrowan town and museum is perfect for tourists, families, and children. There's a lot to see and find out about; my boys were fascinated with the history and how cool Ned Kelly looked.

Every family should go and check it out one weekend. It is 5km from Benalla and Wangaratta.
