There’s no doubt about it – we’re incredibly lucky in Australia to have such beautiful scenery at our fingertips. If you’re looking for your next travel destination – either for a weekend getaway or to add to your list as you make your way around the country – then Creswick could be the perfect choice. Set in the picturesque Victorian countryside, we recommend booking Creswick accommodation for your next holiday.
Many activities to choose from
No matter how long your visiting for, Creswick has something to offer everyone. Take a beautiful hike through Creswick Regional Park, or cycle part of the Ballarat Maryborough Heritage Trail. If you’d prefer a more cultural experience, consider a trip to the Creswick Museum to learn about the rich history of the region. If you’d like to take a break for a bit of retail therapy, enjoy a walk along Albert Street and indulge in the clothing boutiques and antique stores.
History and Beauty combine
One of the best things about using Creswick accommodation is the taste of history you’ll get – in addition to the natural beauty of the region. The town is the birthplace of two prominent Australians, John Curtain, our 14th Prime Minister, and Norman Lindsay, the artist behind the beloved Magic Pudding.
Only a short distance from Ballarat
If you’re looking for a small country town that still offers plenty of wonderful adventures, then Creswick accommodation is the ideal solution. Less than 20 minutes from Ballarat, if you want to visit the big smoke – so to speak – it’s easy to visit without any hassle.
Ideal for the Foodies
One of the best things about a holiday is the vast amounts of delicious food you can taste – and Creswick is no different. Any visit must include sampling as much local produce as you can muster. In town, there are two hotels that are often open for lunch and dinner, whilst cafés are the ideal choice for breakfast or your mid-morning coffee. Alternately, many of the local wineries also have charming restaurants attached – and you can even enjoy some wine tasting. For produce fresh from the farmers, visit the Creswick market, which is held on third Saturday of each month.
A great base for exploring the region
Whilst Ballarat may be the first place that comes to mind, by traveling in the other direction, you’ll quickly find yourself in Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. Known for their natural mineral springs and spas, they are a great retreat after a busy holiday spent exploring. Only half an hour away, you’ll find Creswick accommodation far more affordable than it’s Hepburn counterparts, and you’ll still be close enough to enjoy everything the region has to offer.
As you can see, choosing Creswick accommodation is the perfect choice for your next holiday. Whether you stay for one night, or you spend a few days immersing yourself in the local area, we’re sure you’ll find a reason to return in the near future.
