Discover The Enchanting Appeal and History of Creswick

With its population of almost 3300 people, the town of Creswick radiates with the charm of its rich Gold Rush history. Originally the land of the Dja Dja Wurrung people, Creswick transformed into a bustling hub during the peak of the gold rush era. Along with nearby towns like Ballarat, it forged a legacy of historic significance that it upholds to this day. 


Nowadays, the region stands as a pioneer in reforestation and forestry education in Victoria, blending its historical roots with environmental consciousness. This picturesque town keeps one eye always looking to the future, all while inviting tourists to look back and experience a blend of natural beauty, historical richness, and cultural heritage. It’s also the birthplace of renowned artist and author Norman Lindsay, writer of the iconic Australian classic The Magic Pudding.
