Photographs And Useful Information about Fish Creek
Fish Creek is located on the way to Wilsons Promontory. When travelling from Melbourne, drive along the South Gippsland Highway and turn right just past Meeniyan. Follow the directions to Wilson’s Prom until you see the sign posts to Fish Creek. Being approx.165 km south-east of Melbourne, it’s a comfortable 2 hour drive which makes Fish Creek a popular destination and day trip.

The township has mainly permanent residents, but the population swells over the holiday seasons with tourists and day travellers. The beach at Sandy Point or Waratah Bay is only 18 kilometers away and Tidal River on Wilson’s Prom is a pleasant 60 kilometers drive.
Celia Rosser Art Gallery – This luxurious new art gallery was opened at the end of 2007 and is already making a name for itself with both its unique display of botanical art and the food served in The Banksia Cafe which is situated at the entrance of the gallery. Popular with bus tours, art lovers, tourists and locals, I’ve heard the meals are excellent and the atmosphere delightful.
Fish Creek Tea Cosy Festival – Fish Creek Tea Cosy Festival happens May Biennially. 2020 was 5th festival. Held biennially, the Fish Creek Tea Cosy Festival is nine days of events celebrating creativity and the taking of tea. The feature event of the festival is the tea cosy competition. All entries are exhibited every day and include traditional and whimsical tea cosies that have been crafted using a range of media depending on the imagination and ingenuity of the artist! The tea cosy as a theme reflects the rural setting of Fish Creek – the nurturing and welcoming nature of the town and the blending of traditional and new ways of doing things by the reinvention of an iconic symbol of everyday life. The festival is an avenue for showcasing Fish Creek to the wider community. It builds on the concept of a tea cosy keeping tea warm while it brews. In much the same way, the festival aims to insulate the creative and entrepreneurial nature of the community, keeping the locals, visitors and artists warm while they explore, develop and grow. The festival is organised by a committed group of locals with skills and talents too numerous to list, and is auspiced by the Fish Creek Community Development Group. The festival gives back to our community by distributing profits to local community groups.See what Fish Creek and the surrounding area looks like through the eyes of these unique artists who work with different types of media.
