What is happening at Richmond today - linked to the Kelly Country and Ned Kelly's story

Until recently Richmond was home to workers cottages and factories. In more recent time the suburb has been seen as a good place to live near the centre of Melbourne. There is no real trace left of the horses and drill ground of the old police depot from the time of the KellyGang.
