Take a town walking tour of Creswick, 18
kilometres north of Ballarat, and discover gold all over again in the
form of its historic buildings and old goldmining sites.
Established in 1851, Creswick was bursting at the seams by 1854
when 25,000 prospectors had flocked there. Today 3000 people
call Creswick home.
Some of the amazing accommodation
available in Creswick include the award winning Novotel Forest Resort which has a
championshop golf course and
also the Creswick Calembeen
Lake Caravan Park.
Take the Creswick Miners' Walk, visit Creswick Regional Park and the Creswick
Woollen Mills, lose yourself at The Tangled
Maze, and don't miss St George's Lake, originally created to
provide water for gold sluicing and now a tree-fringed oasis for
swimming and fishing.
