Event description
Who was Edward "Ned" Kelly and why did he form a gang in Victoria?

About this Event

The Victorian Government had already faced an armed rebellion at Eureka stockade in 1854. Once again they faced an armed challenge, this time from four outlawed and armed citizens who held up banks and threatened law and order. Today Ned Kelly is regarded as Australia's first folk hero/ is this belief justified? The execution of Ned Kelly at Pentridge Gaol in Melbourne in 1880 marked the end of the bushranger era in Australia. How should we remember the saga of Ned Kelly and his gang and their challenge to government authority in Victoria?
