Queens Park is a short stroll across Creswick Creek from the town centre of Clunes. Here you will find a pergola, barbecue area, information boards and a fountain.
The fountain, built to celebrate Queen Victoria's golden jubilee in 1887, has been restored and some of the original paths restored as part of the Creswick Creek Walk.
A lovely place to stop for a picnic or simply spend a few hours exploring or relaxing.
Clunes Scenic Drive & Lookout
Take this stunning scenic drive over Creswick Creek, past the historic mine sites to the lookout, which provides beautiful views over the town and surrounding countryside. Information boards along the drive give some insight into the past, including one that compares photos from the 1800's the views of today.
Kingston Avenue of Honour
The Kingston Avenue of Honour is a beautiful and significant site. Visit in autumn to see the stunning autumn colours, or in spring to see the stunning display of green. The Avenue of Honour was planted by the Creswick Shire as a living memorial to those who voluntarily enlisted from the Shire to serve God and the King. Dedicated nine years after cessation of hostilities in 1918, the Avenue of 286 trees planted is a separate acknowledgement of WWI service from the recognition contained on the Creswick Borough Council Honour Board, erected inside the Creswick Town Hall.
A Harcourt granite monument, in the form of an obelisk, was unveiled by Brigadier-General H E Elliot on 18 December 1927 to mark the Kingston end of the avenue.
Creswick of the Lindsay’s Arts Trail
The Creswick of the Lindsay’s Arts Trail highlights the sites and buildings in Creswick that have significance to the Lindsay family.
At each site there is a description explaining the importance of the site to the family. Many include QR codes, allowing you to access further information on your mobile device. The best place to start the trail is at the Creswick Visitor Information Centre, at the corner of Victoria Street and Albert Street, although you can join it at any site you choose.
Most sites can be reached with an easy walk, but some – such as the cemetery – are best visited by car. The total distance of the trail is 7.3 km. However you choose to travel, enjoy the journey!
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.
