Coal Creek Village

Museum in Korumburra

The site of a historic coal mine is now a recreation of a 19th-century mining town. A little less polished and touristy than other similar places in Victoria, it makes for a delightful visit. Among the attractions are a blacksmith, Korumburra's old courthouse, a war museum, ye olde general store, and a diesel-train ride ($6.50, 20 minutes) through the bush; call ahead to check if it's running. A historic steam train ($10) is sometimes fired up, too.
