Stringybark Creek (sign)
Victoria

A famous shootout between the police and the Kelly Gang took place here at Stringybark Creek, in north-east Victoria. The shootout took place in 1878, when a party of four policemen (disguised in civilian clothes) were camped here on an expedition to kill or capture the Kelly Gang. The Kelly Gang surprised them and three policemen were killed. The Kelly Gang were branded outlaws because of this event. There is controversy over the exact location of the camp, but this is the officially recognised site.

    Your grammar is a bit twisted; it should read "was the scene of a shootout" and "Kelly Gang which". Also "policement" should be "policemen". Spelling is "controversy" not "contraversy".
