The RACV Goldfields Resort and golf course will reopen from Thursday 23 June following storm damage that occurred in January 2022.

Extensive repairs have been completed at the venue. In addition to the renovated and upgraded facilities, RACV is also celebrating the launch of ArtHouse – a new multi-purpose building within the Goldfields Resort that will be a centre of arts experience.

The RACV Goldfields Resort sustained damage as a result of a major storm on the afternoon of 5 January, 2022 and had been temporarily closed since that date.

The return to active operation will be a boost to RACV members and the local economy, says RACV Goldfields Resort Manager, Martin Zumstein.

“We’re really proud of the work that has been undertaken to not only restore the venue, but also offer improved facilities and new features for our members and customers,” Mr Zumstein said.

“The resort plays a significant role in contributing to the local economy – we’re looking forward to being a part of our local community once again.”

The work completed to support the reopening of Goldfields includes an upgraded lobby and new front desk, upgraded gym equipment, new children’s entertainment facilities, new carpet, curtains and furniture in the rooms, new conference and events furniture and refreshed carpet in the Springs Bar & Terrace.

Dining at the resort will be available to resort guests only in the months immediately following the reopening.

“People who have been guests to the resort before and come to expect a certain level of comfort, class and service will be impressed,” Mr Zumstein said.

Part of that exciting future is the RACV Goldfields Resort ArtHouse.

RACV Head of Visual Arts, Mardi Nowak, said that ArtHouse would provide an incredible, and unique experience for RACV members and guests.

“RACV is excited to make an important addition to the regional tourism attractions within Creswick and its surrounding towns – the venue is a small part of RACV’s commitment to regional Victoria,” Ms Nowak said.

ArtHouse is slated to open for guests staying at the Resort on June 24 with My Creswick Sketchbook where visitors are encouraged to explore Creswick through creative drawing and take home a sketchbook souvenir.  It will be open to the public later in 2022.
