It is difficult to imagine that during the goldrush of the 1850's this peaceful, unpretentious township had a bustling population in excess of 25,000 eager to make their fortune. Today the remains of that era are evident all around Creswick offering visitors a rich and varied experience of one of Australia's first gold mining districts.
One reputable and fine achievement of Creswick has been the pioneering of landcare and, in 1910, the establishment of the" School of Forestry " - now a part of the University of Melbourne .
Creswick today is small but bustling, self sufficient rural town possessing convenience, natural beauty, art & culture.
EXPLORE the natural & indigenous history, Land Care trails, signed walking tracks, springfed lakes and creeks to fish, swim, and picnic by.
ABSORB the atmosphere of our vineyards , eating houses, country pubs, sporting venues, secluded rural retreats and pure fresh air.
