Gold was discovered at Walhulla in 1863 and it quickly became a thriving township but by the 1920s the town started to become a ghost town. Despite the many challenges, Walhulla has become a wonderful tourist destination with many things to see and do.

In 1998, Walhalla was the last town in Australia to receive a reticulated power supply.

One of the highlights is the Walhulla Goldfields Railway which was restored after many volunteer hours of difficult work and opened in March 2002.

For more details on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway including train times, visit the Walhalla Goldfields Railway website.

Many more things to do include Gold Mine ours, 4WD tours, Gold Panning, Trail Rides, Bush Walking etc.

Walhulla is 45 minutes drive from Traralgon. From Sale, look out for the Walhulla tourist sign as you get near to McDonalds in Traralgon. Turn right at the traffic lights and from there follow the brown 91 tourist signposts.

For more details on Walhalla visit the Walhalla Star Hotel website
