Artist's Description

On my recent road trip back from Melbourne, I called in at Glenrowan – 25 kilometres from Benalla. One of the attractions is a huge Ned Kelly statue and a museum called Kate’s Cottage, which is a replica of the Kelly home, and has all sorts of interesting artifacts on display. It depicts how the Kelly family lived, and shows a replica of Ned’s suit of armour, weapons and items of the era. (Photos were taken with verbal permission …)

The sign to the left of the front door reads in part “This homestead is an authentically reconstructed replica of the Kelly Homestead as it was prior to 1889. After Ned’s hanging – the home was extended and brick chimney added. The original Kelly homestead was situated 9km on the Kelly Gap Road, Glenrowan West. All that remains is the rubble of the brick chimney.” As Kate was apparently Ned’s sister, I’m not sure why this cottage is named after her …
