First-class marksman

The artist – Sidney Nolan – painted a series of pictures about the bushranger Ned Kelly, and the way he painted Kelly’s black armour has become famous and part of Australian folklore.

  • Meet the famous bushranger Ned Kelly.
  • Notice Ned Kelly’s eyes peeking through the slit in his helmet. How do you think he is feeling? What or who might be about to appear through the bush?
  • Write a poem about Ned Kelly’s adventures, starting each line using the letters of ‘Ned Kelly’.
