Museum Markets at the Duck Ponds
The Markets are located in the surrounds of the Museum with Lake Alford and its parks and picnic areas as a beautifully maintained backdrop.
Entertainment by the Gympie Museum Re-enactment Group
is on the 3rd Sunday of each month (Except December & January)
Next performance will be 16th JULY 2017 at 9.30 a.m.
A shootout between the troopers and the bushrangers takes place with Dapper Dan, and his scurrilous gang attempting to steal a large shipment of gold being transported from the goldfields to the bank at Monkland.
The entertainment concludes in a plume of black powder with the firing of the cannons.
Come along and have your photograph taken with the group!
The Re-enactment Group welcomes any new members - come and see the performance,
