This Day in History: 2022-05-01

A perfect sunny day was enjoyed by those attending the bumper 37th Moondyne Festival in Toodyay. “The joy on people’s faces was plain to see after months of debilitating mask mandates, vaccine restrictions and home isolation.”

The Toodyay Historical Society launched its new book about the Festival, entitled ‘Moondyne Festival Snapshot, 1984 to 2020 (rest years in 1987 and 2020)’, compiled by Beth Frayne with the assistance of Jasmin Devlin (Moondyne Festival Committee member).
