Glenrowan - Cities, Towns and Localities

 

It was on the 28 June, 1880, when the Kelly Gang bailed up the townsfolk of Glenrowan in the Ann Jones Inn as part of their grand plan to create a Republic of North East Victoria. During the epic shoot out with the police, Ned's brother Dan and two other gang members, Steve Hart and Joe Byrne, died. Wearing his unique hand-made armour, and in the final dramatic shootout, Ned sustained 28 gunshot wounds before finally been brought to the ground and captured. This epic story of the Glenrowan Siege has been retold countless times, and visitors to Glenrowan, with the aid of a walking trail map and a number of informative signs, can relive this major historical incidents.
