Fish Creek

Fish Creek is a small township in Victoria, Australia. At the 2011 census, Fish Creek and the surrounding area had a population of 791.HistoryFish Creek was first settled in 1886. The Post Office opened on 6 October 1890 next to the proposed railway which arrived in 1892. In 1900 a community hall was built where the Butter Factory building stands today. This hall was used as a church by everyone until in 1904 a new Catholic church was built. Not long after that the Union Church was opened and since then the town has had two churches.The Great South Gippsland Railway line closed to passengers in 1980 for all stations past Leongatha. However freight and goods traffic continued until the line was formally closed in 1994. The track and all other railway infrastructure, such as signals and stations, were removed and a combined bike, pedestrian and horse riding track (The Great Southern Rail Trail) was established along the former rail line.The Town todayFish Creek has a number of art and craft shops catering to tourists who pass through town on their way to Wilsons Promontory. ArtistsAlison Lester and Celia Rosser have galleries in the town.The current Fish Creek Memorial Hall, built in 1930, serves many purposes. It is a venue for parties, funerals, church services and school concerts. The Hall also houses an Op shop, the profits from which go to funding further development work on the enhancement of Hall facilities.
