Moondyne Joe was not known for blazing gunfights or robbing banks. It was the convict bushranger’s amazing ability to escape every time he was placed behind bars than won him fame and the affection of the early settlers. Wearing a kangaroo-skin cape and possum-skin slippers, he roamed the wooded valleys and winding creeks at Moondyne Hills.

This is the story of the greatest escape artists of Australia’s convict era – the legend of Moondyne Joe.
