Coal Creek is a small town in the South Gippsland area of Victoria, Australia. Coal was discovered in the area in 1872, and the region subsequently developed an important coal mining industry. The mine at Coal Creek operated from the 1880s to the 1958, when operations ceased. Coal Creek Heritage Village, a 15 hectare open air museum, was established at the site in 1974.
