Proudly sponsored by Ned Kelly's World
Glenrowan was a quiet little hamlet used as a stop-over and coach staging point between Benalla and Wangaratta until the events of June, 1880, blazed it's name and that of Ned Kelly across world headlines.
The Glenrowan siege was Australia's first widely reported and photographed criminal drama. Telegraphy and outdoor photography were new, and news from Glenrowan via Benalla and Wangaratta telegraph operators, appeared in special newspaper editions almost as it happened.
Today, Glenrowan is a thriving tourist town, catering for those wishing to see the place where Ned Kelly made his famous 'Last Stand' or to re-live the excitement of the siege at the Computerised Animated Theatre.
For those wishing to learn the history surrounding the 'Kelly Outbreak', there are two museums, and if you are researching your family tree and need information about Glenrowan, then see Gary J Dean F.A.I.H.A. at Cobb & Co.
Other places of interest include the souvenir shops, antique shop, wineries, and herb garden.
Those stopping over at Glenrowan are well catered for with four food outlets, one hotel, a motel and caravan park.
Come visit Glenrowan, we would love to see you
