Come take a walk through time at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum. What sets this park apart is that it is a heritage attraction built by a dedicated community. The park has free entry and is always a great day out for the whole family! Ride the bush tramway, dine in the cafe or simply enjoy the natural surrounds. Visit the animals within the park or enjoy a picnic in one of the many scenic spots around the park. Talk to the volunteers for knowledge on local history and let them amaze you with their skilled craftsmanship. Visit the general store for one of Victoria's finest displays and demonstrations of yesteryear. Learn the history of coal from its beginning and see the tools the men used to build their homes and their lives within South Gippsland. Every corner will take you on a journey of history and life of early settlement in Gippsland. OPEN EVERYDAY OF VICTORIAN SCHOOL HOLIDAYS.

When you enter Coal Creek, you are stepping back in time to see how things were done back then. The set up is interesting and made better by people demonstrating or informing how things were done. It is worth preserving.More
