Creswick is located 120 kilometres to the west of Melbourne. Creswick is a town that was developed around the gold mining boom that swept the region in the 1850s. Because of the wealth generated from the mines, it has some grand old buildings built during this period that remain to this day.

Creswick is located near the Creswick Regional Park which contains the bulk of the mountain biking opportunities in the region and it also has the Golfields Track running through the area down to Ballarat in the south and up to Bendigo in the north.

RACV Creswick The RACV has an MTB loop in their grounds at Creswick which is on a "free to use" basis. I have confirmed with the resort that they are open to the public for use and that the only fee that applies is that if you wish to hire a bike which can be done at the resort. Apparently Dirt Art have been in there recently (May 2017) to further upgrade the trails as well.
Planned 100km of Trails The Victorian Government has announced in April 2017 that $2.56M in funding for 100 km of trails in the Creswick area to complement the RACV trails is to be made available.
