There was a time when you could settle in a new area and name it after yourself. That’s exactly what Captain Foster Fyans did in 1837, and Fyansford started a grand journey into the history books as one of Australia’s most prosperous towns. Bridges were built, rivers forded and mill industries blossomed along riverbanks as the population grew, and grew.
And like most historic towns, a pub was erected to keep the locals happy. When spirits were high, and the water level of the Moorabool was too, some daring townsfolk would dive off the iconic Monier bridge. Those days have gone, and it’s time to pass Fyansford on to a new generation of pioneers. So jump right in. Welcome to Gen Fyansford.
