At the recent Townsville SSIQ Northern group conference, the guest speaker – Mr Stephen McCarthy discussed his book 'Ned Kelly, A Widows Son' and the research undertaken to locate Ned Kelly's ‘second’ hut. The research included the use of archival documents, historical maps, survey plans, the use of GNSS and other survey methods. The maps, drawings, images and narrative were used to try and resolve confusion and solve any mystery regarding Ned Kelly's second hut at Bullock Creek, Victoria. The book recreates a fascinating saga of colonial Australian history including evidence surrounding the events of an Australian folk hero and legend.
