Moondyne Festival



The Act-Belong-Commit Toodyay Moondyne Festival 2017

Western Australia's First and Foremost Colonial Festival. Sunday 7 May 2017

The legend of Moondyne Joe, the Avon Valley’s legendary bushranger transforms the picturesque historical town of Toodyay, Western Australia into a lively daylong festival. A highlight of the day being the re-enactment of Moondyne Joe’s various escapades throughout the town, his arrests and mock trials. Join in the fun with Moondyne Joe as he runs around town, robbing shops, escaping custody and being a general menace. Cheer on Joe’s gang, ‘floozies’, coppers, swaggies and the Town Crier.

This is a FREE Festival from 9am to 4pm. So come along and experience the community spirit in the centre of Toodyay, complete with street theatre, colonial village, entertainment, artisan and heritage crafts, healthy food stalls and loads of non-stop, amazing fun activities for all the family.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in pioneer period costume!

Moondyne are presenting three prizes each for the moustache and floozie competition this year. $25 and a bottle of wine for the winners... $15 and some chocolates for second and $10 and some chocolates for third.
