Coal Creek was established in 1974 when a new home for the old Korumburra Courthouse was required. From this single building a historic village was born. The park has undergone many changes over its 40+ years of operation, all of these changes culminating in an authentic feeling coal mining village spanning from the 1870s to the 1920s.
Coal Creek Community Park and Museum is home to over half a million collection items ranging from trains to thimbles. Each piece is important as it helps us to tell the story of life in South Gippsland during pioneer times.
In 2014 Coal Creek Community park and Museum attained museum accreditation through the Museum Accreditation Program (MAP), Museums Victoria.
