Moorabool has a rich indigenous history with the land traditionally occupied by and connected to a number of Aboriginal communities, most notably the Wathaurung Tribe in the south and west and the Wurundjeri Tribe in the east.
Europeans settled in the region between 1830 and 1850, bringing with them European customs including cemeterial burials. Cemeteries across Moorabool vary in terms of age, number of remaining headstones, memorials on site and general landscape and amenities. The Blackwood Cemetery is known for its Chinese section and the Hopetoun Cemetery is recognised as the first Catholic cemetery in regional Victoria.
