Moyston is a small village, only a 15 minute drive from Ararat near the Grampians mountain range. The discovery of gold in 1857 started a small gold rush and the establishment of a township. Wine lovers know the name for the red wine produced at surrounding vineyards, but Moyston is also the birthplace of Australian Rules Football.


  • Stop for a lunch break at the Moyston General Store. Sit on the large decking and enjoy the sunshine whilst you sip on a hot barista made coffee.
  • Visit the monument of Thomas Wills, co-founder and captain of the Melbourne Football Club (1859), which commemorates the birthplace of Australian Rules Football.
