Ned Kelly Totes
Ned Kelly emerged from the forest at Glenrowan behind the police lines in the early morning of June 28th, 1880 in an attempt to get back to his gang at the inn. Dressed in his armour he fought the police for half an hour single-handed before he was brought down by buckshot to his exposed knee.

The most renowned of Australia's bushrangers, Ned Kelly has become a folk hero to many for his anti-authority stance. Known for his suit of home-made iron armour that he wore during the Glenrowan siege with its distinct cylindrical helmet, he is one of the most recognised figures in Australian history.

Ned Kelly is considered by many to be Australia's greatest folk hero. Some look at him as Australia's answer to Robin Hood while others considered him a psychopathic thug. Kelly was a bushranger who operated in Victoria and New South Wales in the late 1870s before fighting the police in home-made armour in 1880. He was hanged in Old Melbourne Gaol.

Master of the bluff, Harry Power was a bushranger with a proud record of never shedding blood. Twice escaping from Pentridge Prison, he frequently baffled authorities with his ability to traverse vast distances between robberies and is known as Ned Kelly's tutor in bushranging. Power disappeared mysteriously in the 1890s but it is believed he died in 1892 though some believe he survived long after that.

One of Australia's most notorious bushranger gangs, the Kelly gang comprised of Ned Kelly, his little brother Dan and their friends Joe Byrne and Steve Hart. Between October 1878 and June 1880 they were the most wanted men in the British Empire. Here we see them in oilskins and armour (minus helmets) as they were at Glenrowan for the infamous siege.
