Visiting Information


The Park is open with new CovidSafe opening hours.

Free ticket entry. Tickets can be booked via this Link.


There will be limited numbers and 2 timeslots available to keep everyone COVIDSAFE.

At present only some of the buildings are open, but the collection can be viewed through the window.  The train is not operating.


All events at Coal Creek are cancelled until further notice. This includes Geek Fest, Heritage Craft Day, the Literary Festival and Halloween.

The events have been cancelled in the interest of community safety. The layout of the park means that we cannot ensure that the State Government’s social distancing provisions are complied with.

 Council is in the process of developing a plan to reopen Coal Creek Community Park and Museum to align with State Government guidelines for providing a safe environment for visitors, staff and volunteers during COVID-19.

 A staged plan will allow the reassessment of operations to align with Government directives in order to provide a safe environment for visitors, volunteers and staff.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothing as we are an outdoor, living history museum.

To best experience Coal Creek, we recommend that you allow at least three hours at our site. We encourage you to book to ensure you are able to visit on your preferred day.

Please note, for the safety and comfort of all Coal Creek patrons, dogs are not permitted on the premises.

Please be aware that children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult whilst in the park.
