This beautiful item has been created by Josephine Caruana of Foto-Scape Landscape Photography. It was taken In Forbes NSW Australia not far from the original location of outlaw bushranger Ben Hall's homestead. Some bushrangers left in their wake a sense of excitement – the notion that an individual could take on the oppressive power of the establishment and by their daring and cunning become an icon for the frustrations of the common man. Ben Hall was definitely one of these.
Certainly his death was received with almost a reverential reception in Forbes, located as it is just across from Hall's native country around the Weddin Mountains to the south.
By comparison, when his partner in crime - Johnny Gilbert was shot and killed at Binalong a week later, the matter of his burial was despatched in a most brisk and unemotive manner befitting the state's most prolific robber and murderer of Police Constable Parry.
Today you can discover the Ben Hall legacy at Forbes by visiting his grave in the town cemetery, travelling to the site of his death 25km north west of the town and also exploring a range of museum displays.
