Pleasantly surprised
Feb 2020
We stopped in not sure what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised, the site is much bigger than we expected, was well maintained and spotless clean. We spent a couple of hours exploring the village and meeting the volunteers who operate the park. As an added bonus entry is free. Well worth a visit, allow a couple of hours to take it all in.

Coal Creek Community Park and Museum

Great place to take you back in time. Free entry There is an old train, a house, cinema barber shop and general Store and Bank among many more places of interest.
I would have liked there to have been a cafe where you could sit and have a snack.
Pathways were a bit rough and might be a bit steep for the elderly or people in wheelchairs We are 71 and 73 and managed to get around quite well
There is a Gift Store and the General Store sells lollies etc. from yesteryear.
We really enjoyed it

Coal Creek Korumburra

A great step back in history to see how our pioneers lived in early days of the Korumburra region and how they mined Coal to power the industry of that time.

Sep 2019 • Friends
Highly recommend a visit! The staff are all great, really friendly and helpful.

Spinner's room, general store and printers - all highlights. Interesting and relaxing place to visit.

It's free and open Thursday to Monday inc. 10-4.30pm. toilets and parking onsite. We spent a couple of hours enjoying a rainy day exploring the village and also saw the Anne Frank exhibition in the display room.

What a hidden gem
Jun 2019 • Family
We stumbled across this place by accident and are so glad we did. Volunteers were very friendly and we spent the best part of the morning wandering around the little village, taking in the history of the place. So wonderful that it was free. The children loved the school and the grocery store.

So much to see
May 2019 • Couples
It took us a while just to get through the entrance as we spied some local art on display in the gallery, and browsed the gift shop full of local produce and handcrafted items made by the tradesmen volunteers. You really do get a sense of stepping back in time to the early pioneering days.

Comparable to Sovereign Hills, without the expensive entrance fee
Apr 2019 • Family
Amazing place with a lot of coal town history preserved. Can't believe this place is free, it is comparable to Sovereign hills in Ballarat minus the crowd. Do stop by Grocery and Drappery store in the town, talk to Barbara and Wendy, they are enthusiastic to share the history with you. I hope the town council will preserve this wonderful place, maybe charge a small admission fee for maintainence of this place for the children and younger generations.

Coal Creek Visit
Nov 2018 • Friends
This is an interesting establishment for either a family visit or to bring overseas guests for a day outing. Lots of displays of old wares and lifestyle exhibits depicting the bygone days of the area. We went as a group doing photography and there was plenty to photograph.
