Swifts Creek is known for its tranquil surroundings and hideaways where many talented, somewhat reclusive artists ply their crafts in peace, and as home to the Great Alpine Gallery. The town sits on the banks of the Tambo River and Swifts Creek. The waterway and town were named for an otherwise unknown gold prospector named Swift, who worked the creek panning for alluvial gold in the 1850s. You won’t go hungry in Swifts Creek with tasty options for a lunchtime stopover or a picnic by the river. One of the most popular shops in the town is the Swifts Creek Bakery, boasting a long history of more than 100 years offering old-fashioned friendly service and products baked daily. Although its famous wood fired oven, built in 1886, is no longer in working order, products are handmade on the premises including a huge range of cakes and slices and delicious pies, pasties and sausage rolls. The bakery team takes the time to lovingly prepare their fresh cakes and other bakery goods. On the main street, Creekers Café and Takeaway offers a wide range of café style food, coffee and giftware and local crafts.
