Australian bushranger and outlaw Ned Kelly's original, full set of homemade plate armor.


This is the final resting place of Ned Kelly, the famous, or infamous, bushranger who was hanged for his crimes on 11th November, 1880. In 2013 members of the Kelly family joined to grant him his dying wish and his remains were moved from Melbourne to Greta where they were interred in the same cemetery as his brother & fellow gang member, Dan Kelly, and Steve Hart who was also part of his gang. His mother, Ellen and other siblings are buried in unmarked graves nearby.


The last photos of Ned Kelly were taken by the official Melbourne Gaol photographer, Charles Nettleton on November 10, 1880, the day before Ned’s execution. In this full-length study, Ned holds the cord attached to his leg irons to disguise the withering of his wounded left arm and rests a fist on his hip to mask a crippled hand.
