The Ned Kelly Story

Mair Street, Benalla

Ned Kelly in Benalla. Here you can see the bootmaker's shop in Arundel Street where Ned hid after being charged with drunkenness and riding his horse on the footpath. When he gave himself up to Constable Fitzpatrick after a fracas he was taken in handcuffs across the road to the old court house. Ned's cell is situated behind the building and is open to the public.

A short walk away is the Costume & Pioneer Museum, it's situated just over the bridge at Lake Benalla adjacent to the Benalla mural. The museum houses some fabulous artifacts associated with the Kelly era, one of the most interesting is the bloodstained silk cummerbund Ned was wearing when he was captured at Glenrowan. The portable cell which held Ned on his journey to Melbourne by train is also here.

At Benalla cemetery you'll find the graves of many people linked to the Kelly period, Joseph Byrne, Martin Cherry, Dr Nicholson who treated Ned and took his cummerbund are all here.
