2023 Nationals

The HD/HR Holden Nationals is the highlight of the calendar year for all owners. 

2023 is being held in Benalla Vic

BENALLA As the major town closest to Ned’s home, Benalla was the epicentre of Kelly’s bushranging days and was police headquarters for the Kelly Gang manhunt. The gang comprised Ned and Dan Kelly, Steve Hart and Joe Byrne. Sidney Nolan’s tapestry depicting the siege, ‘Glenrowan’, is on display at the internationally renowned Benalla Art Gallery along with other Kelly-related works. At the Costume and Kelly Museum you can step inside the portable cell once used to hold Ned Kelly, this is an opportunity to live history. The museum also holds the green silk sash presented to Ned in gratitude for saving the young boy in Avenel . Other Kelly sites include the cemetery, where gang member Joe Byrne is buried, the courthouse where the Kelly family appeared on various charges, and the bootmaker’s shop where Kelly was once involved in a fight with several police. A comprehensive Benalla trail brochure with maps showing all the Ned Kelly sites is available from the Visitor Information Centre.

Benalla Ceramic Mural

Mair Street, Benalla

This community project and public space has intrigued all who have explored it. Created by skilled and unskilled artists alike with recognised input from aboriginal groups the curvaceous terracotta clay Ceramic Mural with its collanades, cave seats, "thongaphones" and amphitheatre invites the curious to explore its many features.

Much of the ceramic work was completed by local artist Judy Lorraine and was begun in 1983 with funding from the Australia Council Community Arts Board. The mural evokes the structures and spaces created by the celebrated Spanish artist Antoni Gaudí.
