'A Journey Through Kelly Country'

A Journey Through Kelly CountryA Journey Through Kelly CountryIn 1881 the Victorian Government held a Royal Commission to 'inquire into the circumstances preceding and attending the Kelly Outbreak'. During the inquiry commissioners identified a triangular parcel of land where the Ned Kelly Gang reigned for twenty months, committing daring exploits of crime.

This parcel of land lies between Benalla, Mansfield and Beechworth, which includes the surrounding areas of the King Valley, Warby Ranges and Woolshed Valley in North East Victoria, Australia. This land became known as Kelly Country!

"There’s no icon that stands the test of time through Australian history better than Ned Kelly. The words ‘such is life’ uttered by Ned, when facing his demise at the 'Old' Melbourne Goal, are synonymous with Australian culture."
