Ned Kelly town

Ned Kelly town
In 2006 when I last took the family to Victoria we stopped at Glenrowan, famous for the Ned Kelly siege. Today we’re in Jerilderie, famous for the other Kelly raid and his letter.

Long day by design and we’re at Jerilderie for the night. Never been here before, lots of Ned Kelly history to see in the morning. But just dinner for now. Then Mythbusters Star Wars special then sleep! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Fun in Manly

Fun in Manly
Fun day in Manly — after just one half hour appointment we had the whole day free otherwise. Will went on a group excursion, Alex stayed with me and we went to Max Brenners for a drink. We all saw The Croods in the evening–really very good! I knew so little about it, but it’s ...
