We would like you to join Peter FitzSimons and the Navy Clearance Diver Trust for Breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Perth, where Peter will discuss his latest book, Ned Kelly.

Ned Kelly: Thief, remorseless killer or criminal mastermind? Hero, Robin Hood or political evolutionary?

Love him or loathe him, Ned Kelly has been at the heart of Australian culture and identity since he came out fighting, dressed in bulletproof iron armour made from farmers’ ploughs.
Now Peter FitzSimons is telling the story of this most iconic Australian. Hero or criminal? Fitzy’s weighed up the arguments and made his decision!
