'Moyola' was the Randell family home in Western Australia, built by Gerald Randell,and is situated at 41 Turner Rd Bridgetown, Western Australia, Australia, about 260 Km South of the capital city, Perth. It has been claimed that the name 'Moyola' is an ancient Gaelic word meaning 'A happy trysting place', and was once suggested as an appropriate name for the National Capital, which was eventaully named 'Canberra'.
In 1930 Gerald commissioned Italian stonemasons the 'Bazzo Brothers' to build his new home "Moyola" using local granite stone and fitted out with locally milled jarrah and Belgian beveled windows.
It is currently a Bed and Breakfast business operating as Moyola Manor Guesthouse
