A visit to Creswick must include a stop at our award winning Creswick Woollen Mills; an Australian family business and the last coloured woollen spinning mill located in Creswick, Victoria. Experience 'A Very Fine Yarn', the interactive exhibition that showcases the journey of natural fibres and the history of the Mill. Stop for lunch at the dynamic Mill café, where local produce is championed across its hearty menu. Meet Farmer Cameron, Creswick's resident animal expert, who walks visitors through the new animal enclosure, allowing everyone to get up close and personal with Creswick's gorgeous alpacas, sheep and goats - including feeding and patting them.
Admire the architecture of Creswick's broad, elegantly curved main street, studded with buildings that owe their existence to the gold rush town's heyday.
Originally inhabited by the Indigenous Dja Dja Wurrung people, Creswick grew rapidly during the gold rush years and later became the birthplace of reforestation and home to the school of forestry in Victoria.
Get a glimpse of the town's rich history on a stroll past the old Masonic Lodge, State Savings Bank, Creswick Library and Post Office. For a closer look, spend a few quiet hours delving into the local folklore at the Creswick Museum.
Explore the places of interest relating to Creswick's famous son, noted artist Norman Lindsay. Pay attention to the progress of the Magic Pudding Playground, based around the characters and events of Lindsay's The Magic Pudding book and a delight for kids and adults alike.
Work on your swing with a round or two at the RACV Goldfields Resort 18-hole course, designed by Tony Cashmore.
Venture out to Creswick Regional Park for koala spotting, bush walking or enjoy a quiet picnic and a spot of fishing at St Georges Lake. Visit in springtime and marvel at the colours of the native wildflowers.
Make Creswick a rest and refuel stop on your Goldfields Track adventures. Take the Wallaby Track into the Dividing Range, through open native forest and into town for some much-needed respite before getting back on track.
