Leg 1: Yarragon to Walhalla
67 km/41 miles, about 1 hour

There's no better place to start your West Gippsland explorations than in peaceful Yarragon, where an artistic community flourishes alongside a passion for regional produce.

Indulging in Yarragon
Known for its specialty shops, Yarragon also features one of Gippsland's leading antique stores and galleries. Shopping for linen and lace, soaps and candles, dolls and bears, fabrics and patterns, blown-glass vases and sculptures, cups and saucers, clothing and children's items can work up an appetite for the town's delicious Devonshire teas. Regional wines, sumptuous smoked meats and fresh local produce can be purchased at the Gippsland Food and Wine Store.

Set out for Walhalla
With the car groaning under the weight of your edible purchases, it's time to set out for Walhalla on an hour-long drive around the Moe regional centre and green dairy farming country.

Take the time to experience the beautiful gold rush town of Walhalla, nestled in a deep valley and home to only 20 residents. Tour the Long Tunnel Extended Gold Mine, ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway, or explore the cemetery overlooking the village. The self-guided Walhalla Historic Township Walk offers insights into the town's rich past, while a ghost tour will reveal another side all together.
