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.

Interpretive Guide - use self-guided audio and maps available on a tablet to provide interpretation as you make your way around the park. It's just like having a personal tour guide!

Ghost Tours - join the guides if you dare and experience the eerie village at night, learning about those who call Coal Creek home after dark. Ghost Tours run every month and are available for group bookings.

Groups and Events - discover the hidden treasures that make this park a wonderful venue for your next family event or wedding. Groups can book tours of the park and the education program is a must for schools.
