The Moliagul Cemetery lies in a quiet, peaceful spot surrounded by bushland.

There is a wheelchair accessible toilet block and a rubbish bin on site.

This cemetery contains the grave of John Deason (died 1915, aged 85 years), co-finder of the famous "Welcome Stranger" gold nugget in Moliagul in 1869.

There's a fascinating memorial for the Welcome Stranger gold nugget at the Welcome Stranger Monument and Picnic Area, which is located at the site of the nugget's discovery. Along with excellent picnic facilities you will find detailed information boards and a short, educational historic walk.


  • Many cemeteries in the goldfields were established in the early-mid 19th century. Walking through the historic cemeteries of the area is like taking a walk through time.
