Glenrowan

 

Victoria, Australia

 

Glenrowan, 220km north of Melbourne, is a quiet little town between Benalla and Wangaratta that blazed into Australian history in 1880, as the site of the famous siege where Ned Kelly and his gang made their last stand. Ned Kelly is undoubtedly Australia's most notorious bushranger and an important part of Australian folklore. Many attractions around the town bring together the various aspects of the enduring legend, making it easy to learn more about the man and his infamous gang.

"In the beginning was the Word*, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him  

nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men...

He* came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to

them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who

were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

( * Jesus )   Gospel of John  ch.1  vs.1-4 & 11-13.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version

 

 

 

NED KELLY - art

Edward "Ned" Kelly (June 1854 or 1855 – 11 November 1880) was an Irish Australian bushranger. He is considered by some to be merely a cold-blooded killer, while others consider him to be a folk hero and symbol of Irish Australian resistance against the Anglo-Australian ruling class.

Kelly was born in Victoria to an Irish convict father, and as a young man he clashed with the Victoria Police. Following an incident at his home in 1878, police parties searched for him in the bush. After he killed three policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly and his gang wanted outlaws.

A final violent confrontation with police took place at Glenrowan on 28 June 1880. Kelly, dressed in home-made plate metal armour and a helmet, was captured and sent to jail. He was convicted of three counts of capital murder and hanged at Old Melbourne Gaol in November 1880. His daring and notoriety made him an iconic figure in Australian history, folklore, literature, art and film.
