Welcome to Walhalla

Gold was discovered here on 26 December 1862, although the first find wasn't registered until January 1863, which is when the gold rush really began. In its gold-mining heyday, Walhalla had a population of 5000; today it's home to just 20 people. The dead who are buried in the stunningly sited cemetery vastly outnumber the living.
