Creswick Shire

Creswick Shire (1863-1995), an area of 551 square km, was formed on 31 December 1863, succeeding a Road District that was nearly five years old.

The township of Creswick was in the south-west corner of the shire, and was a separate borough from 1863 to 1934. The shire was north of Ballarat and west of Daylesford, and like those places had substantial gold mining.
