Overview

See firsthand how some of Australia's finest natural fiber products are made on a guided tour of the historic Creswick Woollen Mills. Meet and feed resident alpacas, and then follow the journey of yarn, from shearing through processing and weaving into luxurious products prized throughout the country. It’s a great way to appreciate Australian-made craftsmanship and makes an easy excursion from Ballarat or Daylesford. Choose from four daily tour times and make your way to Creswick Woollen Mills, located about 75 miles (120 km) from Melbourne or only a quick 20-minute drive from either Daylesford or Ballarat. Tours are 11am, 12noon, 1pm & 2pm daily. Our new cafe has recently opened with a selection of food and refreshing drinks that are locally sourced and produced. The tour is $15 per adult (includes up to three children free) and the entry fee is redeemable as a $15 discount on purchases over $50. $10 per senior or pre-arranged tour over 8 people. Entry fee is redeemable as a $10 discount on purchases over $40. The rest of the Mill’s attractions are free entry! We also offer free entry to the Mill’s A Very Fine Yarn interactive exhibit when you show your RACV card. Tour lengths are: Discovery 5-15 minutes; Fibre Experience 5-10 minutes; Fleece Tunnel 1-5 minutes; Process Walkway 5-20 minutes.
