Moondyne Joe Festival Tour – Toodyay
The lovely picturesque town of Toodyay will be transformed on the 6th May in memory of one of WA’s most infamous convicts, Moondyne Joe. Joseph Johns arrived in Fremantle after stealing cheese, bread, bacon, mutton and suet, and being sentenced to 10 years imprisonment as a convict. Due to good behaviour on the ship he was offered a ticket of leave upon arrival in Australia. In 1861 he was arrested in Newcastle for stealing horses, he was sentenced to imprisonment but he soon escaped from jail. What followed was a series of crimes and consequential escapes from prison. Joe started to get a reputation as a man who could not be held, even escaping from an “escape proof” cell. His story is the stuff of legend, and the town of Toodyay brings it to life with actors re-enacting the events of his story in an exciting display. There will also be markets, other entertainment and the chance you could get involved in the story yourself.
