Overview

Walhalla

Experience life as it was in historic Walhalla. Once one of Australia's richest towns and home to over 4000 gold seekers, this sleepy mountainside town is now frozen in time and is home to only 20 residents. Walk through the lovingly restored centre full of heritage buildings, try your hand at panning for gold, or take a tour of the surrounding area.

History and heritage

Revel in the history that followed the discovery of Cohen's Reef, a three-kilometre vein of gold running through Walhalla. Learn about the tough lives of miners, pan for gold down at Stringers Creek, and then explore the old hotels, shops, school and churches built in the 19th century when the town was at its peak.

Railways and tours

Take a ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway. Enjoy the vibrant autumn trees, the beautiful Stringers Creek Gorge and colourful spring wildflowers. For something a little spookier, take a ghost tour at the old cemetery on the hill.

Mountain hideaways

Spend a weekend in one of the many B&Bs in and around Walhalla. Enjoy open fires and spectacular views of the valley. Whether you're in town for a couple's retreat or family getaway, you’ll find plenty of accommodation options, from basic rooms through to luxury digs.
