After doing the Ned Kelly Museum it was a must to wander over to the site where the shoot out occurred. There's not much left at the site, even the remade sign for the Inn is gone. You need to use your imagination a bit...More

Having been to the museum, this is a 5 minute walk away and helps round off the Ned Kelly experience. Several signposts with commentary, in around a 400m self guided walk, allows you to view where the hotel was and location of Ned, his gang,...More

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

Glenrowan is not far of the beaten track - especially if you are following the Ned Kelly Trail. We left the M1 and decided to get to Benalla via Glenrowan. We enjoyed following the information markers around the siege site and learning more about what...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.
