Bushwalking In Creswick

Today the Outdoor Ed group made their way to Creswick’s St George Lake. Upon arrival we headed east to the Koala park and attempted to find some Koala’s. Unfortunately we didn’t find any of the sleepy animals in the trees although we had a good time following The Goldfields Walking Track through the bush.


Please reflect on this morning’s journey and answer the following questions:

1. What direction did we travel from Ballarat to get to Creswick? (Hint, you may have to use google maps to find out)

2. What was the St George’s Lake and Eason’s Dam used for originally?

3. The Koala Park was built in 1942 for a few reasons. What were they?

4. Can you name the types of tree’s that koala’s live in, and also what type of leaves they eat?

Good work boys!
