The Pioneers of MoystonPrint Page
The Moyston 'pioneers' were nearly all immigrants to the country and district. The finding of gold in 1859 lead to a rush to Campbells Reef (now known as Moyston). Alluvial gold was found but deeper mining meant that companies were formed. In the 1860s there was a change to the Land Act and many miners took advantage of the opportunity to select land and thus stayed in the area.
