The childhood house of Ned Kelly, bushranger, built in 1859 by his father John 'Red' Kelly.

ITS not every day the first house of infamous bushranger Ned Kelly goes on the market.

Edward "Ned" Kelly (1854 – 1880) was an Australian bushranger, and, to some, a folk hero for his defiance of the colonial authorities. Kelly was born in Victoria to an Irish convict father, and as a young man he clashed with the police. Following an incident at his home in 1878, police parties searched for him in the bush. After he murdered three policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly and his gang wanted outlaws. A final violent confrontation with police took place at Glenrowan.
