A highlight of the day is 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. The event promises street theatre, a colonial village, entertainment, artisans and heritage crafts, healthy food stalls and loads of non-stop amazing fun activities. Held on the first Sunday in May each year, this is a FREE Festival running from 9am to 4pm. Everyone is encouraged to dress in pioneer period costume. Looks like a great day out.
