We visited on our way home and absolutely loved it. Plenty to see and do, they had a special Donkey day when we went which made it even better. I would have happily payed for entry (it is free admission).

Driving through Korumburra, we saw this museum and had a look. Surprisingly interesting with the different types of buildings, including the inside exhibitions. Several were attended by volunteer staff. The wool spinning with a few ladies was most inspiring.

I found Coal Creek to be a great place, to get an idea of what living in South Gippsland would have been like in the late 19th/ early 20th century. The park is well set out and also ideal for groups.
