Yallourn North had a wide variety of criminals. Many are unknown.
Some were more akin to slapstick comedians, and some are serious villains.
Even so, no citizen of the Brown Coal Mine ever received a death sentence.
Rumour has it some of the Kelly gang spent time in the hills around Yallourn North while hiding from the police.
It is never proven, just a legend.

A coin counterfeiter, which feels like he kept copying himself over and over, did he ever get it right? Another is of a tragic architect, how does one fall from such an esteemed position to die as a footnote of his apprentices story? What brings a policeman, mailman and publican together in one episode? It's murder. The Shady Creek Murder. I have also become obsessed with the small ghost of Yallourn, Victoria.
