Information

Archies Creek is a rural village in west Gippsland, 8 km north-west of Wonthaggi. The naming of the creek is obscure, apart from the conjecture that there was an early settler with the surname Archer or Archie.

Farm subdivisions were taken up at Archies Creek in the 1880s in country that was suited to dairying.

About 1902 local milk producers, feeling that dairy factories were not paying them well enough, bought out a small factory at Archies Creek and formed a company composed of local shareholders. The later establishment of the butter factory was the life blood of Archies Creek. It provided employment for over 200 people and the associated workers engendered the need for a hall and an Anglican church. Several stores comprised a village shopping area.

During the years after World War II Archies Creek dairy products were exported to over twenty countries. Notwithstanding the company's growth, dairy factory rationalisations resulted in its takeover by Murray Goulburn in 1972 and subsequent closure in 1983.

Today Archies Creek has a general store, a hotel, a restaurant, a recreation reserve and a public hall.
