Moondyne Festival



Moondyne Festival is Western Australia's First and Foremost Colonial Festival. Sunday 3rd May 2015

The festival celebrates the life of Moondyne Joe, Toodyay, Western Australia's legendary bushranger. Joe's main claim to fame was his ability to escape prison, despite a special reinforced cell having been constructed to keep him in.

Join in the fun with Moondyne Joe as he runs around town, robbing shops, escaping custody and being a general menace.

There will be "Joe's Gang", coppers, floozies, swaggies and the town crier. We also have a moustache plus an 1860's regiment, wood chopping, blacksmith, wood turning, art exhibition, antique collectors fair, car club display, children's activities.

Toodyay’s Moondyne Festival is a family focused fun day with the entertainment non stop from 9am to 4pm. We promise you a day of interesting things to see and do.

Everyone is invited to dress in pioneer costume.
