The first selections in Moyhu were made in about 1856.
The name could come from the names of two chinese vegetable growers, Ah Moy and Ah Yu. Others say it is a corruption of Myrrhee.

Links to the KellyGang
Graves believed that the principal time that the KellyGang were out they kept in the immediate neighborhood between Greta and Moyhu. Either at Glenmore Station, or on the Hedi Station. There were always strange horses whenever he went up, or marks of strange horse in paddocks. It was his impression that they were in the district the whole time. (RC15507)
