Calembeen Park Creswick

Calambeen Park has two beautiful lakes that are home to birdlife and displays of waterlilies. It was once the town’s Chinese camp in the goldmining days, now you can visit the park for walking, cycling, swimming, fishing and a favourite of locals and visitors alike, the now restored dive tower.

Calambeen Park is home to the public art piece ‘My Dearest’, which can be found by taking the walking trail around the lake.

Wild Mindfulness Australia

Our Mindfulness Forest Tour takes you on a half day hiking experience through the magnificent Wombat State Forest where we introduce you to the ideas of mindfulness whilst leading you on a relaxing and rejuvenating journey through the forest.

Throughout our walk we seek to develop a connection with the forest by tuning in to the present environment. We stop for two seated meditations along the way where you will practice hearing, seeing and sensing the forest in ways that both relax and inspire us. The content is designed to offer you practical information about mindfulness whilst also offering you the chance to connect to the calming presence of the forest.

The tour finishes with a light picnic on the banks of Wombat Creek.

Creswick Pump Track

Unlike many traditional dirt pump tracks, the Hammon Park Pump Track is covered in bitumen for a smoother and faster riding surface for mountain bikers, skateboarders and scooter riders to enjoy, and is already being hailed by riders for its quality.

The Creswick Pump Track is conveniently located within walking distance of the town centre and is accessible by train or bus.

The Hammon Park pump track is the first stage of the Creswick Trails Project which will see the creation of a 100 kilometre purpose-built mountain bike trail network.

Mount Franklin Reserve

Known as Lalgambook by the Djadja Wurrung people, Mt Franklin is a small volcanic crater that offers ideal place for a picnic or basic camping set amongst huge conifers and deciduous trees. Mount Franklin is a fine example of a breached scoria cone. The breach, through which the road now enters the crater, is thought to have been caused by a flow of lava breaking through the crater rim. Lava from Mount Franklin and other volcanoes in the area filled valleys and buried the goldbearing streams that became the renowned ‘deep leads’ of the gold mining era.

You can camp for short stays at Mt Franklin which is also suitable for caravans and motor homes on a first come first served basis. No fees apply. Toilets, fireplaces and washing water are provided.
