Seige site is part of the larger Seige Precinct. Marked out really well with lots of history markers and information. Even landscaped to feel as if you’ve stepped back in time. Worth the stop for anyone interested in Kelly history.

Visiting this site and the Ned Kelly Museum brings the whole Kelly Gang capture story to life. Visit both with the kids and let them learn about Australian colonial bushranging history.

The family really enjoyed informative walk telling the NK story. The tall stature in town adds to whole experience. This is well laid out and interesting. Definitely worth the stop here in Glenrowan. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful

Lots of lovely old houses to see and the history of the town is obvious to all. The Ned Kelly history is the main attraction with various sites of historical interest around the town. Many so called "museums" are private businesses and not good value,

Really enjoyed walking around taking photos and looking in little shops (not many) we went over the bridge to the area where the shoot out was. House gone and police station gone. Had high tea in a little friendly cafe which was lovely.

Like me - most visitors to Glenrowan come to visit the Ned Kelly Seige site. Before you do so pick up one of the brochures which covers the sites and explains the site features. On my first visit to the site, a bit underwhelmed and...More

Ann Jones rebuilt on the site with government compensation. A later, 1890s wine shanty on the 80-metre by 25-metre block on Siege Street was demolished in 1976 and the privately owned site is now vacant.
