In the forested mountain countryside of Gippsland, the historic town of Walhalla is tucked in a steep, sheer-sided valley.

During the boom days of the goldrush some 5,000 people resided here; today just 21 people live in the perfectly preserved town.

Exploring Walhalla

The gold mine at Walhalla's Star Hotel, WalhallaExcellent walking trails link the town’s many historic buildings, including the old fire station and corner store, and you can also ride the restored steam engine of the Walhalla Goldfields Railway.

The town is surrounded by giant gum trees perched precariously on steep hills, creeks and an abundance of local wildlife, perfect for bushwalks. At night the peace is spectacular, when the town is virtually empty apart from a few friendly locals and an occasional wombat.
