I went. 

Very Respectful Service, no Media Scrum. 

If I go unexpectedly soon, I want a 300C Hearse too.

Hopefully Sunday will go just as smooth.

We just followed the leader on that trip. Don't remember if I turned on ozi at all.

Just looking at google maps I can get to most of the places. The only one I am missing is the old homestead. I have found everything else.

I could take you places but without the intimate knowledge of the subject it would be a waste of time.
Besides October might not be too good for me. I have the Melb Cup W/E off so planning might have to start for that.

Is this any use to you?

Anyway, the proposed itenerary for our Sunday and Monday Tours:

MORNING:  Depart Tolmie by 8:30 AM at the latest.

Stringbark Creek:  View Police Camp & Shootings site. Lonigan, Scanlon & Kennedy murdered here.

Travel to Benalla

Benalla:   Visit Old Court House and Bootmakers Shop (both intimately connected to Ned)
                 Visit Benalla Cemetery - grave  site of Joe Byrne, Old Tom Lloyd and Jane Quinn (Neds
                Aunt), Martin Cherry, Sambo, Dr Nicholson &  other  contempory figures. 
                Quick visit if time permits to Kelly display at local Costume and Pioneer Museum.

Travel to Greta West:  Travel thru lands previously held in Kilfeera Station holding of Robert
               McBean  to view    Kelly Selection & Homestead site (viewed from road adjacent).

Travel to Glenrowan:  Hopefully there by 1:30 PM.  Extended stay for lunch and viewing of Seige
               Site Historic  Precinct.  Plenty of time to purchase memorabilia of the day and visit private
               museums (2) which are  quite cheap to enter.   We have arranged a group booking for
               one at their coach rate, which is $3.50 a   head.  The other is   only   $2 a head entry. 

MID AFTERNOON

Travel to Greta:  Greta Cemetary.  Grave sites of Ellen Kelly & Children. Grave of Maggie Skillion,
               Neds sister. Gravesite of Dan Kelly and Steve Hart.
              Also graves of young Tom Lloyd - Maggies partner (unofficial 5th member of the gang)
              and other Lloyd family members.

Travel to Powers Lookout via Whitfield.  View where Ned was inducted into the arts of bushranging and highway robbery by the last of the "Highwaymen" - Harry Power.  Overlooking the King Valley and Glenmore Run, the property owned by Neds Grandfather and Uncles, the Quinns.

RETURN TO TOLMIE: 

Anticipated return time 5:30 PM.

Housekeeping (who goes on what day) will be finalised closer to the event.  I realise some people may only be attending for the Saturday/Sunday, not the Monday/Tuesday long break.  Those persons will have first crack at the Sunday Tour.

These are good resources  for other sites:
