    Train to Creswick Railway Station

    by Kate-Me Written May 3, 2015

    The Creswick Railway station is one of my earliest memories of Creswick - going there when I was about 5 years old to wait for the train bringing my great aunt to visit from Gippsland. Shortly after, the station closed for over 30 years and it's only been in the last few years that it's been reopened.

    Now it's possible to arrive and depart from Creswick Railway Station to Maryborough, Ballarat and Melbourne, once per day. The morning train departing from Maryborough to Creswick and from there to Melbourne (via Ballarat) goes about 8 am (but if you were working, it doesn't make it to Melb by 9 am, rather about 9.30).

    The afternoon train from Melbourne to Creswick (via Ballarat) is at a better time slot (for shoppers, not for workers unless you finish work at 4 pm or 4.30) . The total journey time is approximately 2 hours, Melbourne - Creswick.

    Or drive...

    by Kate-Me Written Aug 1, 2003

    Public transport within Creswick is non existent apart from the taxi, so to explore the district you'll need a car.
    Go out a little into the countryside and explore, see some of the many mullock heaps and other remnants of the mining era of the 1850's - around 1900.
    This photo (not taken by me, for a change) is taken near Kingston. The region around Creswick is an important potato and other vegetable crop growing area and the soil is rich and very chocolate like in appearance (from the volcanic plains). The row of trees you see is part of the Avenue of Honour. This idea originated in Victoria. Each tree is a remembrance, representing one serviceman or women who fought in the world wars. Some Avenue of Honours have little plaques with soldiers names at the foot of each tree.

    Walk!

    by Kate-Me Written Aug 1, 2003

    Creswick is a small enough town that you can walk around the best parts of it and through the township.
    If you like walking, there are the lake walks, bushwalking, and other walks in and around the town.
    Or biking is another nice way to get around. There are only a couple of large road hills and the rest of the riding is quite flat.

    Here's a little map to help you find your way around Creswick. The Midland Highway (which becomes Albert St in the town) is the main road into the township.
