Ned Kelly Country: Strathbogie Ranges - beautiful, wild and rugged

The country is of the most inaccessible nature, being covered with steep mountain ranges clad with dense forests. The district has a wild and lawless population connected by marriage whose sympathies are on the side of disorder, violence and dishonesty.

It was from this tribe of horse-thieves and cattle-stealers that four desperadoes, criminals from birth, took on their famous bush-ranging career which extended from April 1878 through two years and two months and finished at Glenrowan with the deaths of three young men aged twenty-three, nineteen, and twenty-one.

Their injured leader was captured, tried at Beechworth and hanged on November 11th in Melbourne Gaol aged twenty-five.
