Day 1

Home – Melbourne
After our morning flights into Melbourne, we catch up with the rest of the gang from other states for our Kelly adventures. At the Old Melbourne Gaol, we begin where Ned Kelly’s journey ultimately finished in 1880. A guided tour will uncover some of the lesser known facts about Ned Kelly and his bushranger life. Later this afternoon, we check into our accommodation for the next two nights.

D

Day 2

Parliament House – Pentridge Gaol
Our day starts with a tour of the State Parliament, reinforcing why those with the wealth and the law on their side were adamant that these bushrangers needed to be captured at all costs.
After a City Circle Tram ride, enjoy some free time to purchase your own lunch and perhaps join a public tour of the Victorian State Library, which is now home to the Kelly Gang Armour. This afternoon, get ready for a very unique city tour of Melbourne, specialising in the Underworld History of Melbourne Gangsters from the early bushrangers to the worlds greatest ‘bookie
robbery’ of 1976. After an early dinner, tonight we head to the Pentridge Gaol for a ghost tour of the now closed penitentiary.

B, D

Day 3

Melbourne – Mansfield – Beechworth
This morning we travel to Euroa for a visit to the Farmer’s Arms Hotel Museum followed by morning tea. Continue on to Mansfield where we will see the cemetery where the three policemen
killed at Stringybark Creek are buried, and the Mansfield Courthouse, where the Kelly Gang were first declared outlaws. After a picnic lunch, our journey continues to Powers Lookout, where Ned's mentor, Harry Power, used to hide out. Our journey then makes its way to Beechworth for our overnight stay.

B, L, D

Day 4

Beechworth – Benalla – Tocumwal
All four members of the Kelly Gang spent time in Beechworth, and our guided tour of the town will fill us in on some of the Kelly history, as well as the gold rush history of the town. After some free time for exploring, we continue on to Glenrowan, the site of Ned Kelly’s last stand, for lunch. Visiting the Benalla Costume and Pioneer Museum, stand in the portable cell that once held Ned Kelly and see the sash he won for his bravery when 12 years old. Leaving Benalla, we head towards Murray River country, stopping overnight in Tocumwal.

B, L, D

Day 5

Tocumwal – Jerilderie – Cowra
Ned Kelly came to Jerilderie in 1879 with a bounty on his head. In the only NSW town on the Kelly trail, there are 15 sites connected to the Kelly gang, where Kelly sought to have The
Jerilderie Letter published. After some free time to explore the town, we continue on to Cowra via Cootamundra.

B, L, D

Day 6

Cowra – Sydney – Home
Today we travel through bushranger Ben Hall country via Bathurst and on to Penrith for lunch. This afternoon, we will farewell our Queensland passengers in Sydney before doing drop offs to the Hunter.
