Coal Creek 40th Anniversary

Coal Creek 40th Anniversary

This year marks the 40 year anniversary of the historic attraction, Coal Creek. Situated in Korumburra in South Gippsland, the historic village has been designed as a recreation of a late 19th century township, allowing visitors the opportunity to explore the regions rich coal mining history, dairy and timber history as well as exploring the museum and open air displays.

As well as celebrating their 40th birthday this year, the Coal Creek Community Park and Museum has been granted Accreditation by Museums Australia. Judged on the museum’s efforts in Aboriginal reconciliation, strong educational programs and highly successful community engagement programs, Coal Creek Community Park and Museum not only fascinates and entertains, but educates and caters for the community. Come along and ride the bush tramway, treat yourself to some old fashioned lollies and sweets from the general store, visit the friendly animals and feed the ducks. If you can brave it, attend one of the Ghost Tours in the evening and explore the village at night. Admission to the community park is free. Open Thursday to Monday from 10am-4:30pm and daily during Victorian school holidays.
