    This photo was taken of VTer Martin NL at the top of Australasia Mine in Creswick, one summer night a couple of years ago now.... if you watch out, there's quite a lot of good sunsets to be had here in a season, especially if you've a good vantage point.
    Even in winter, we often have rather good sunsets here.

    Captain's Creek Winery, Blampied

    The Cellar door of Captain's Creek (an organic winery) just opened in August 2006, though the winery itself has been there (situated on a 100 year old farming property) for several years. It's open on weekends or by appointment.
    The winery is located just off the highway at Blampied, between Creswick and Daylesford (just past the town of Newlyn, so about 12 minutes drive from Creswick).

    Smeaton sunset summer 2004

    If you're in the right place at the right time, sunsets in and around Creswick in summer can be great, especially since the town is surrounded on several sides by hills and mountains on its outskirts.
    This photo was taken between Creswick and the neighbouring town of Smeaton.

    There's a lot of wildlife to be seen

    There's a lot of wildlife to be seen around Creswick, particularly bird life around St George's Lake and some of the other bushwalks near water.
    They may not be obvious at first glance, but if you keep a look out and stay quiet, besides the regular birds you could be lucky to spot a yellow robin or a Willy Wagtail or other species of small attractive birds.
    At home here in Creswick, we don't have to go far to see plenty of birds: they come to us at our bird feeder fountain, and now that we've installed a Rosella parrot nesting box in one of our gum trees, we can watch newly hatched baby parrots from our balcony.
