Visit the Mill
The Creswick Woollen Mill has over 60 years of history to draw upon, and is now the only remaining Woollen Coloured Spinning Mill of its type left in Australia. It is the Mill’s high quality of its products that has allowed it to survive in this now dying Australian industry.
Creswick offers luxurious, high quality natural fibre products designed with Australian conditions in mid. Unique products created at the Mill include Alpaca blankets, throw, scarves and much more.
Visit the newly expanded knitwear store and see a great selection of natural-fibre fashion for men, women and children. With factory outlet prices, you can save up to 70% off recommended retail prices.
Conveniently located between Ballarat and Daylesford, the Mills is a perfect destination for daytrippers, holiday makers and tour groups, both large and small.
A typical visit to the Mills can include arrival refreshments on the viewing deck, an information and history self guided tour of the working machinery and a chance to have your photograph taken while feeding our friendly alpacas. Why not browse through the Ryzowy Gallery and take home an Australian made alpaca product made right here at the Mill.
