A Tale of the Australian Bush is a 1911 Australian silent film directed by Gaston Mervale. It was also known as Ben Hall, the Notorious Bushranger and is considered a lost film.
The story of the bushranger Ben Hall, including his duel with Melville, last stand and death. A contemporary review said that "unlike the usual bushranging films, instead of glorifying the villainy of the criminals of the bush, recorded a triumph of the law over the lawless."
It was the first film from the production company Australian Life Biograph Company.
The film was first released in Sydney as Ben Hall, the Notorious Bushranger before being screened nationally under the other title.
