Took the family for a day trip to Coal Creek. Whilst there are quite a few displays and buildings to view, nothing much interactive for young children. The train ride took us around the back half of the establishment, but no commentary on anything left...More

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.
