48 kilometres north of Melbourne lies the birthplace of notorious bushranger Ned Kelly. The rural town of Beveridge sits alongside the Hume Freeway within the City of Whittlesea. Located on the corner of Kelly Street and Stewart Street is the weatherboard cottage that Ned lived in as a child. Ned’s father John ‘Red’ Kelly built the home using local materials including bluestone. In 2014, the 3.5 acre property on which the Kelly cottage sits sold for $640,000. While in town you can also see Beveridge Catholic School which the Kelly kids attended.
