Outlaw criminal, victim or hero, he is part of the spirit and character of Australian history. ‘As game as Ned Kelly’ used to rank with ‘Has the heart of Phar Lap’ as a way of describing what it was to be Australian. Ned has, through his trademark iron helmet and his impassioned rhetoric, an extraordinary ability to hold our attention. This online exhibition tells the story of the hunt for Ned Kelly using original police records and other archives.
