Bushranger Ned Kelly's final wish has been realised more than 132 years after he was hanged.
Kelly was laid to rest on Sunday beside the unmarked grave of his mother at a cemetery in the tiny northeast Victorian town of Greta, not far from Glenrowan where he had his last stand in June 1880.
Kelly's burial brings about the realisation of his dying wish of a traditional Catholic burial in consecrated ground alongside his loved ones.
A marquee surrounded the gravesite during the burial which was attended by dozens of his descendants.
Kelly's great-grand-niece, Joanne Griffiths, said the family was happy to finally put things right.
"I think we all feel really relieved and proud after all the work to try and achieve this, that finally he was given his final wish," she said.
"Regardless of what people might think now ... this is not the day for judgment this is just the day for burying a family member.
"We are really, really happy to achieve that and at least put that part to rest, put things right."
The burial came after a funeral service in nearby Wangaratta on Friday.
More than 200 descendants, along with many interested members of the public attended the mass.
Kelly was hanged in 1880 after shooting dead three policeman.
His skull has been missing since 1978 when it was stolen from a display case at the Old Melbourne Gaol.
Reportedly, Kelly's remains will be encased in concrete to ensure his bones are not stolen.
