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.

You have to be a Ned Kelly fan or interest in bushrangers to understand and appreciate this place, it's a point where you can imagine and see what happened

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.

A visit to Glenrowan must include a walk across the railway to view the sight of the infamous siege. A total of 200m round trip. All points of interest are sign-posted including the history and facts

Very enjoyable and educational experience. Our family of 5 had a great hour following the signs and the actual spots of the Kelly gang capture. Free and very well signed.
