Freshwater Creek

Freshwater Creek is a small town in the Surf Coast Shire, Victoria, Australia. It is named after the drainage creek that flows through the area after heavy rain.

The town has only two shops: a petrol station, general store, and restaurant, and a bakery, Freshwater Creek Cakes. Freshwater Creek Cakes is well known within the region, and has been listed in the Foodies Guide to Melbourne. The town also has a public hall, tennis courts, and Freshwater Creek Steiner School.

Freshwater Creek Post Office opened on 21 January 1860, was provisionally closed on 25 January 1961, and closed on 25 March 1961.

A school was opened at Freshwater Creek in 1856 as a Wesleyan denominational school. It became a department school with the introduction of state schools in 1883. A new weatherboard building was opened at the same time, following the bluestone building from 1856. Freshwater Creek Primary School closed around the 1980s. The school's honour roll from World War I is now located in the town's public hall, and is listed on the Victorian War Heritage Inventory. A new independent school within the town, Freshwater Creek Steiner School, opened on a different site in 2000.
