Our Heritage

The Moloney family first arrived in Rockhampton, with our Great Great Grandfather Mr John Moloney sailing in on the ship Winsfel in 1861. Starting out in the early settlement years, he began working in Yaamba just north of Rockhampton at the age of 18. Soon after moving back to Eton Vale, Rockhampton, where he established one of the first prominent citrus farms in the area. John was later appointed to be the first treasurer of the local Glenmore School, where his eleven children would attend. As a result of his generous contribution to the region & his ever ready attitude to communicate the result of his long experience, he was honoured with the tribute of having the adjacent street running parallel with Splitters Creek being named after him as Moloney St, after his passing. A mistake was made in the sign writing of the street, and has since been named Maloney St (pictured above). 


Fast forward to June 2014. Lloyd Moloney had been working in various full-time engineering roles and felt led to resign and start a family legacy, birthing Moloney & Sons Engineering. Since its inception in 2014, Moloney & Sons Engineering has grown from a one-man-band in a bedroom office to incorporate four Moloney families and several other employees servicing projects in cities and towns throughout the entire Eastern Seaboard. Expanding in 2018 to Engineering Manufacturing has seen the business grow to 3 offices in Rockhampton, Gold Coast and Barcaldine.

Generations on, the same Moloney family has been present in Rockhampton ever since that day in 1861, that John stepped off the ship Winsfel. Thus, emulating over 150 years of family history in the Rockhampton region. This stands to testament that through the seasons, Moloney’s will be there.
