By following the Touring Route, Kelly-inspired visitors will gain a deeper understanding of the Kelly narrative through storyboards installed at the sites where the historic events occurred – Old Melbourne Gaol, Avenel, Euroa, Stringybark Creek, Glenrowan, Beechworth, Benalla and Jerilderie – geographic markers of a national phenomenon.
Several storyboards along the Woolshed Valley carry references to the Kelly Gang. A storyboard will also be erected on the site of the Kelly family home in Moyglass, County Tipperary, where Ned Kelly’s father ‘Red Kelly’ lived, before being transported to Australia in 1841.
Ned Kelly has been an enduring presence in the Australian psyche for more than 125 years. Ned Kelly, the bushranger, the larrikin, and to some, the hero, is one of Australia’s best-known historical figures.
He is also part of the nation’s mythology, repeatedly re-emerging through Australia’s art, literature, film music and other forms of popular culture.
