Or head to one of the small historic towns around the region like Eldorado and check out the Eldorado Dredge or perhaps do the self-guided walk throughout the town. Or to find out more about the final siege and capture of Ned Kelly, head to the historic town of Glenrowan to chat to one of the friendly locals.
