Harry Power, last of Australia’s infamous bushrangers, was captured at his hideout on 5 June 1870. Today it’s a popular spot to visit both for the superb view of the King Valley 300 metres or so below and for its part in Australian bushranger history and its connection with Ned Kelly, in particular. A perfect excuse to stretch the legs halfway between Mansfield and the wineries of the King Valley. Pack a picnic or take a thermos for a warm cuppa while you overlook the valley and imagine life as a bushranger.
