Wangaratta Council: The Ned Kelly Glenrowan Project

Glenrowan to host immersive Ned Kelly experience

Glenrowan is where things ended for Ned Kelly and his gang in 1880, but where it’s set to begin for people wanting to learn more about an important part of Victoria’s history in the most immersive fashion to date.

A $3.5 million Victorian Government investment will help to deliver a viewing tower and siege site experience enhanced with virtual and augmented realities, boosting tourism to Glenrowan and its surrounds.

This innovative approach will allow visitors to witness and experience the epic confrontation between police and the Kelly Gang up close.

This experience combined with upgraded amenities will make the Ned Kelly Glenrowan Project a magnet for history buffs, students, tourists, and locals.
