Creswick gold map

Creswick is a gold rush town, established during the early gold rush of the 1850s, lies in close proximity to the world-renowned Ballarat goldfield.

In the Ballaarat district the diggers seem to have regularly scattered ; the Eureka is almost deserted for Creswick’s Creek, which now boasts of a population equal to that of Eureka last month. – The Argus, 20th December 1852

Today the Creswick Regional Park is a popular destination for gold prospectors, with Slaty Creek being a local favourite for free camping, gold panning and gold detecting.

Creswick is home to one of only six surviving state gold batteries in Victoria, the others being located at Wedderburn, Maldon, Mt Egerton, Bright and Rutherglen.
