Conceived by controversial entrepreneur Archibald Meston, the original historical Wild Australia Show toured in 1892 - 1893 to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and featured a choreographed group of 27 Aboriginal people recruited from the frontier in Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Unfortunately, the plans were curtailed by a contractual dispute and financial incompetence. After performances in Brisbane and Sydney, the troupe was stranded in Melbourne.
