Chum Creek

Chum Creek is a rural locality 53 km north-east of central Melbourne and immediately north-west of Healesville. The creek’s headwaters are in the vicinity of Toolangi. It joins the Watts River in Healesville which in turn joins the Yarra. The name originated as New Chum Creek, a reference to traces of gold found in the creek in the mid-1850s, which attracted a few ‘new chum’ miners.
