A historic mining gem...
There is more to Creswick than meets the eye when first driving through the old mining town in central Victoria. Set amongst enormous eucalypts, Creswick's main street is lined with buildings that owe their existence to the region's common claim to fame, the Victorian gold rush.
A stroll down the main street will reveal a number of historic buildings including the old Masonic Lodge, State Savings Bank, Creswick Library, Post Office and the Creswick Museum/Town Hall.
The town is surrounded by forests where you will find the Goldfields Track weaving its way from Ballarat to Bendigo. Creswick is also home to a great fresh water swimming hole and Regional Park, St George's Lake, home to waterbirds and the elusive platypus. If you ever do find yourself tiring of riding, walking or swimming you could take in a round of golf at the newly designed course at the RACV Goldfields Resort.
