Ross Creek

Ross Creek is a rural locality 12 km south-west of Ballarat. It was named after Charles Ross, who took up a pastoral run in 1841.

Ross Creek is situated between the former gold fields of Ballarat and Woady Yaloak/Smythesdale, but was not itself a mining area. It was well forested, and a source of timber for mining engines and for supporting underground shafts.
