Welcome to Walhalla


Gold was discovered here on 26 December 1862, although the first find was not registered until January 1863, which is when the gold rush really began. In its gold-mining heyday, Walhalla’s population was 5000, today it's just 12!

Like all great ghost towns, the dead that are buried in the stunningly sited cemetery vastly outnumber the living.
