Glenrowan, Victoria 3675.

Nestled in a valley floor, it's backdrop the softly swollen mounds of low hills, the town of Glenrowan, exudes a feeling of peace and security. Yet for a short time in it's existence, it was to witness one of the bloodiest conflicts to ever happen in Australia. Ned Kelly fell from shotgun blasts to his legs and groin, and our hero's freedom was over......

 

Ned Kelly's Animated Show.
Glenrowan 3765.

The Famous Ned Kelly's last stand, in this you shuffle from room to room viewing the last stand, you start at the Old Melbourne Railway station, then you move into the Ann Jones Inn, where there is a lot of singing,babys crying, dogs barking and chickens clucking, I honestly believe this is what the Ann Jones would have been like back in June 1880,then you hear caps being fired, outside the room you are in!, The siege is on!. Then you move outside and you are standing on the railway station platform, and from here you view the Inn and four armoured outlaws, firing at the police who are to your left, the Kelly's directly in front.

After the siege you head for the Inn and the roof caves in! but wait! there is cyclone fence which catches it, Phew!, but that was burnt down in February due to electrical faults, and is being repaired, so it is not in use. Finally, you enter the gallows at the Old Melbourne Goal, and you see Ned being hung! but only his feet, and that's the end of your show, tad expensive, but worth it I think.

Written on the hand out for the show and I quote:

Donít tell me that at some time in your life you havenít fantasised about going back into history and participating in an historical event.

Well here is your chance to live that dream.

For through the brilliance of animation and computerised robots, you will be transferred back in time, over 100 years, to witness the events that lead up to the capture of the Kelly Gang. Starting as hostages in the hotel, and then onto gunfights - burning buildings - shoot outs - a decent hanging, finishing in our magnificent painting gallery. The show is educational, historically correct and entertaining. It runs for 40 minutes every half hour (in separate rooms) from 9.30am to 4.30pm daily.

Only for people who want to enjoy themselves.

This semi-live theatre production is fully air-conditioned and can seat up to 80 people at any one time
