Andersons Mill

In a postcard setting on the banks of Birch's Creek at Smeaton, Andersons Mill stands as a reminder of an industry that flourished after the gold rush of the 1850s. Standing much like it was over 100 years ago; the five-storey bluestone building and its magnificent iron water wheel are still in place. The grounds of Andersons Mill can be enjoyed at all times for picnics and enjoying the grounds.

Anderson's Mill is open to the public on the first Sunday of each month during Autumn and Spring and during special events such as the annual Anderson's Mill Festival in April & the Heritage Festival in May.
The grounds around the Mill may be enjoyed at other times but please observe private property signs. The toilet facilities are available only when the mill is open.

Koala Park – Creswick Regional Park

Walking tracks in Koala Park are closed due to flood damage, including a section of the Goldfields Track. The cycling route of the Goldfields Track remains open in this area.

Koala Park has a network of walking tracks. There's a good chance of spotting a koala here, although you are more likely to see one at Slaty Creek or Eaton's Dam.

In 1942, forestry students constructed a netting fence in a section of the forest to be used as a breeding area for koalas. Koalas were released in the enclosure to breed and boost the numbers of the local population. However, they were able to climb the fence and so dispersed into the surrounding forest.
