Virtual Schools Event S4 – The Last Bushranger (Stage 3)

  30-Mar-2022      09:30AM
Live Event

Virtual Excursions Australia is supporting Australian schools by providing discounted live virtual events available via DART Learning.


During this virtual program students connect live with a museum educator to investigate the significance and effect of the gold rush in New South Wales – including the rise and fall of bushranging.

How did the discovery of gold drastically change the colony’s fortune? And what role did the Royal Sydney Mint play, in revolutionising Australia’s economy?

Drawing on a range of police records, and using the experience of New South Wales’ last bushranger, Captain Moonlite, students will also learn about the nature of bushranging between 1850 and 1880.

What crimes did these men commit, what weapons did they use, and how did advances in technology – such as railways and communications – help the NSW Police fight back, and get the upper hand?

Importantly, during this interactive program students will see objects, artworks and sources – and work like historians to indentify and evaluate evidence.


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Virtual Excursions Australia, Museums of History NSW (Sydney Living Museums)
