Creswick District Development Association

About Us

 

This website is owned and managed by Business & Tourism Creswick Inc., a non profit community group, and is provided for the benefit of our local community and visitors to Creswick.

The group was formed in the early 1970's and with several name changes since that time, it has initiated a number of projects and worked towards the promotion of Creswick and district as an interesting, attractive and safe place in which to live.

Business & Tourism Creswick Inc is a representative body of community, cultural and commercial interests of Creswick and district.

Its aims are to support the business community by promoting the town and district to attract visitors and encourage residents to “Buy Local”, provide a conduit for dissemination of information and to work with Local, State and Federal Government representative’s to secure funds for community projects. The organisation undertakes various other activities locally for fundraising purposes for its various projects.

 
Creswick has a long association with the arts, particularly through its former residents, the famous Lindsay family of artists and writers. This group is endeavouring to reclaim this association toward profiling Creswick as an art region.

Currently major projects include the Lindsay's Arts Trail and the Magic Pudding Playground.

Membership is open to any district resident or local business owner. Monthly general meetings are held in Creswick with committee meetings held as necessary. The Hepburn Shire Councillors for Creswick Ward and Hepburn Shire officers attend from time to time.

Should you wish to join us, use the contact page to send  an email and we will forward a membership form together with details of meetings and subscription.
