The focus in this chapter is directed primarily at ‘teasing’ out the tangible and visual evidence of a story about an episode of history. It considers the creation of ‘prosthetic memories’, of ‘being there’ without actually ‘being there’, and of ‘consuming history’ through the medium of heritage-based tourism. This is a study which draws particularly on the investigative and interpretative skill sets of ‘thinking geographically’ and ‘the gaze’ component of semiotics as it sets out to unravel how heritage is created in the present, and in the forms which have attraction for tourism. These matters are put to the test in a case study of the nineteenth century Australian bushranger, outlaw and folk hero, Ned Kelly.
