      A film serial, Stingaree ran to twelve episodes, each released independently at weekly intervals.

      Each episode is individually indexed on AustLit.

      Overall, the story followed wealthy Englishman Irving Randolph, whose greedy brother grasped the opportunity to denounce him when he accidentally killed a man in a shooting competition. Randolph flees to Australia, where he becomes the Robin Hood-style bandit 'Stingaree', assisted by his sweetheart Ethel and his partner Howie.

      The series was followed by The Further Adventures of Stingaree in 1917.
