Valencia Creek is just a 15-minute drive north of Maffra, it’s an idyllic rural enclave offering a tranquil escape from the demands of city life. This charming town is aptly named, as it rests against the backdrop of the Great Dividing Range's foothills, which begin their ascent immediately to the north of Valencia Creek. On the southern side, the landscape transforms into an expanse of dairy farms stretching along the Avon River flats down to Boisdale.
Renowned for its serene ambiance, Valencia Creek and the Avon River invites residents and visitors alike to revel in its allure. Nature enthusiasts can delight in leisurely bushwalks that weave through the scenic terrain, while those with an equestrian inclination can explore the horse trails in the area. For the more adventurous spirits, bike and 4WD tracks offer an avenue to discover the landscape at a faster pace.
In the heart of town, you’ll find a fire station, a hall, and a historic church that, while no longer holding services, stands as a testament to the town's architectural and cultural history. The former Post Office which opened on 23 July 1895, closed the next year, reopened in 1900, and finally closed again in 1974 also stands as a reminder of Valencia Creek's past.
The local school is now consolidated with several surrounding schools to form the Boisdale Consolidated School, shaping the educational landscape for the region's youth.
