Moondyne Festival

W.A.'s most exciting & entertaining colonial festival!


Come along and join in the fun at the FREE to attend Moondyne Festival held annually in Toodyay township. Everyone is encouraged to dress in pioneer period costume…come as a floozie, swaggie or street urchin. Or wax up and enter the fabulous Moustache Competition!

The legend of Moondyne Joe, the Avon Valley’s legendary bushranger transforms the picturesque historical town of Toodyay, Western Australia into a lively all day festival, the 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.
