Ned Kelly Country.

Hughes Creek Bridge #Avenel Boasts one of provincial #Victoria's most impressive #bridges in the six-arch, stone crossing of Hughes Creek which only a 40 minute drive from #Mooroopna was built by Hugh Dalrymple in 1850 and originally had a tollgate and #tollkeepersCottage nearby.

The young #NedKelly saved a boy from drowning just down stream of the #HughesCreek Bridge in Avenel, for which he was awarded a green silk sash by the boy's parents. Ned was wearing this when he was captured at the Siege of #Glenrowan.
