PIONEERS IN PETTICOATS


The Friends of Old Government House & Experiment Farm Cottage, in association with Blaxland and Daughter present 'Pioneers in Petticoats'.

Pioneers in Petticoats brings to life four charismatic colonial Australian women. In 1791 First Fleet convict Mary Bryant escaped the colony in an open boat to Batavia (now Timor), with tragic results. Child pioneer Eliza Hawkins travelled on a bullock dray to Bathurst. Unsung scientist Fanny Macleay emigrated as the eldest of six unmarried daughters of the Colonial Secretary. And the legendary celebrity Lola Montez performed her Spider Dance at the Ballarat goldfields in the 1850s.

Two performances will be held in the Dining Room of Old Government House where you will be welcomed by Lady Elizabeth Macquarie (Wife of Governor Lachlan Macquarie) and Mr Fopp (the Butler). Following the performance, guests will be taken on a short tour of the ground floor before partaking in a light supper.
