    Ned Kelly

    May 4 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Resting our legs we took a long drive, stopped by a historical wooden bridge just next to the road on the way, to end up in the village where Ned Kelly was captured some 100 years ago. We learned a bit of history before continuing the drive south to find another one of the mountains and another national park.Read more

    On my way back to the Murray

    May 2 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Made my way through some little towns and back onto the Murray River. Did some fishing ( no fish 🐠 in the Murray) and Frank and Phil caught up with me again for a few days which included a cheese board snack for my birthday!!

    Brown Brothers Winery

    March 15, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Free overnight at Brown Brothers Winery. Spent the afternoon at the Cellar Door taking in the wine tasting, followed by a grazing plate and a beaut Pinot Grigio at the wine bar. Left with a box of wine, and had a great day.

    The Lions club must be quite busy here. They have an old church as their meeting place. A lot of work has been done on the Lions Park with good amenities and a free barbecue. The whole area is very well maintained.

    To the side of the park is the start of a dairy museum. An old engine, genset and milking machine drive. It's all a layout I had not seen before and probably predates the more common Southern Cross machines. Vacuum for the milking process was created by a reciprocating piston. There did not seem to be a teat attachments though. These were easily damaged as they aged so were often discarded.Read more

    Brown Brothers winery

    February 20, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    If you like wine, a stop at Milawa is a must. Here you can find the Brown Brothers winery. There is much to choose from with something for just about every taste.

    Next stop would be the Milawa cheese factory. Stock up on cheeses and then check out the wines here. The Moscato is to die for. An explosion of tasty grapes in every sip. One taste and you are completely hooked. Next a muscat and suddenly you realize you can't afford to taste any more. They also have several preservative free wines.

    Wines from the cellar are definitely just a little more posh than your average drive through bottle shop.

    Wangaratta is a good place to stop for groceries. There are several major supermarkets so you can get just about everything you might need.

    We headed to one of the parks that offered showers. After a quick stop we were on our way again. On the way in we spotted a neat minion letterbox at one of the farms. Heading out we went past a historic water tower.Read more

    When you mention Glenrowan to an Australian they will immediately think of Ned Kelly. This town certainly is keeping the memory alive.

    A good town walk is free for anyone with a little time to spare and there are a few Ned Kelly museums. We looked around on that had an authentic reproduction of the Kelly homestead. This was quite interesting and complimented the extensive memorabilia and period items.

    After the walk and raking in all the history you can visit one of the cafes for a Kelly inspired meal.

    We joined the Kelly Gang!

    April 16, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Our last stop before home was Glenrowan, the town where Ned Kelly was captured. Every single building and street in the town has something to do with the Kelly Gang or family. Do the local people get sick of it?

    There is so much to say about Ned Kelly! We learned heaps. He's a famous bushranger ("bad guy"). His family was very poor and his dad was in jail a lot. Ned did some little bad things when he was young, but he got put in jail when he was a teenager for something he didn't do, for 3 years. I reckon he might have been angry when he got out. We feel like he didn't need to turn so bad if he had an easier family life. He became a robber and did kill someone. Anyway he seemed to have clever ways of evading the police but in the end justice won the battle and he got caught and executed.

    Life looked like it was tough in the olden days in the little old huts. There was a type of fridge which was just a cage with a wet sack over it!

    We dressed up for photos. Ruby wasn't so sure about the clothes but it was fun! Do you think we look like we mean business? The armour was heavy!
