What is significant?
The Green Creek Sawmill existed from about 1900 for several decades and represents the second, industrialised phase of the now passed lifestyle. It is not known which of the several local milling families operated it but it may have been the Fitzpatrick family who relocated to the outskirts of Dunkeld in 1942. It was one of several in the upper Victoria Valley, the closest being about 2.2kms to the north-east and McIntyre's, later Strahan's, 13.5kms to the south-west. Little survives of these ephemeral sites, with only pits, trenches and a clearing for a yard at the Green Creek site. It retains a high degree of archaeological potential.

Why is it significant?
