1863 ~ 2009
The township of Moyston is approximately 18 kilometres west of the old goldmining town of Ararat. The first burial in the Moyston cemetery was in 1863 and the cemetery is still used today. It is very well maintained and also contains a Mausoleum for some of the McDonald family. There are four main sections in the cemetery, Church of England, Methodist, Presbyterian and Roman Catholic. It is quiet large but not all of it has been used.
Approximately 220 kilometres North West from Melbourne in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, the area is famous for its wineries, also for wheat, oats and wool.
Many Chinese also were present in the 1850's trying to strike it rich looking for gold. In the first three months of the Gold Rush three tons of gold was officially escorted from Ararat.
