Creswick Heritage Walk (December 2017)

The Creswick Heritage Walk links a number of the best natural and cultural heritage features of Creswick, many of which until now you could only separately access and then by car, such as the heritage-listed La Gerche walking trail.

Starting at the centre of the town from the Visitor Centre, the new Creswick Heritage Walk offers the opportunity for an attractive 8.5km, 2-3hr circuit walk. See the attached MAP. It features the heritage-listed La Gerche trail managed by Parks Victoria with its 135yo stands of conifers and extensive oak gully, as well as historic buildings and an arboretum within the University of Melbourne Creswick campus, topped off with magnificent views from a hilltop within HVP’s Creswick pine plantation.

The Creswick Heritage Walk also offers a greatly improved exit route northbound from Creswick for the Wallaby Track section of the Goldfields Track.
