Welcome toCreswick

Visit Creswick

Famous as the birthplace of some very famous Australian sons, Prime Minister John Curtin and artist Norman Lindsay, Creswick is as beautiful as it is historic. Meandering its elegantly curved main street lined with shady plane trees and grand buildings it’s easy to picture what life must have been like when this was a bustling gold boomtown during the 1850s. Thanks to the work of forestry pioneer John La Gerche, Creswick is also the birthplace of reforestation – and today, much of La Gerche’s work can be enjoyed in and around the town including majestic local street plantings and a lakeside walking trail highlighting his work.

Delve further into local art and history at the Creswick Museum, where Lindsay family works are always on display.
