Ramahyuck Cemetery

The Bataluk Cultural Trail, located in eastern Victoria, is designed to introduce visitors to the lives and culture of the Gunaikurnai people, the Indigenous people native to the region of Gippsland. One of its 12 sites is the Ramahyuck Aboriginal Mission Cemetery, the history of which speaks the impact of colonialism on the Gunaikurnai people’s past and present.

In 1863, the Ramahyuck Aboriginal Mission was established by the Presbyterian Mission Committee, on the banks of the Avon River, near Lake Wellington in Gippsland. The word Ramahyuck is composed of the Hebrew word Ramah meaning the “home of Samuel” and the Gunaikurnai word yuck meaning “mother” or “own.” Friedrich August Hagenauer, a Moravian missionary, oversaw the settlement, which accommodated people from the Gunaikurnai nation.
