Ned Kelly Touring Route

Explore the legend of Ned Kelly through the historical sites of Melbourne, North East Victoria and Southern New South Wales.

The official Ned Kelly Touring Route tells one of Australia's most powerful tales-that of Ned Kelly and his Gang.

The Kelly family roots come from Tipperary in Ireland, but the famous exploits of Ned Kelly and his gang happened from Glenrowan to Jerilderie, Euroa, Beechworth, Benalla and Mansfield (and his grisly end in Old Melbourne Gaol).  Other places to explore in the history of  Ned Kelly include his younger years in Avenel, Beveridge and Greta.  You can dip your toe into the Ned Kelly story in a day or take the time to explore the many sites over a number of days.

There are loads of highlights on the Ned Kelly Touring Route - all places chosen specifically for the part they played in the Kelly Gang saga.

Visit the Ned Kelly Touring Route website to plan your next road trip or ways you can tie a piece of the Kelly Story into your next holiday:

An informative brochure is available from Visitor Information Centres and other outlets along the Route.
