Revealing mistake: Why does the railroad station look so old? It should be almost new at the time of the film.

Factual error: The film implies that Ned Kelly and his friends only became criminals after being harassed by the police. In fact, they had a long history of criminality, bushranging and animal rustling before being declared outlaws.


Factual error: In the film, many hostages and policemen are killed and wounded in the final shootout at Glenrowan. In actual fact, two hostages (Martin Cherry and John Jones) were killed and two more wounded, and on the police side only Superintendent Hare, an Aboriginal tracker and a civilian volunteer were wounded. There was no travelling circus present.


Factual error: In one scene where the Kelly boys arrive at their home a flashing red light can be seen from either an aircraft (port light) or the top of a radio tower.

Joe Byrne: I'm sure there's no harm in being friendly.
