Bread Tin Ned! Whatever will they think of next. Or maybe we all harbor latent criminal tendencies…somehow people do seem to admire these guys! Living in chat with teen boys landscape populated with giant fibreglass representations of fruit and animals is quite normal to many Aussies.
Greetings, Filip. Wow, that is a big statue of Ned Kelly! Some of the other attractions we have are almost tasteful! I bet if he made his last stand in a pair of King Gee shorts and a singlet, no one would talk about him any more!
