Meet Aus­tralia’s pret­ti­est towns.

WALHALLA, VIC­TO­RIA

Sit­u­ated on the south­ern end of the Vic­to­rian Alps just two hours east of Mel­bourne, Walhalla is a his­toric gold min­ing town nes­tled sceni­cally in a deep moun­tain val­ley. Seem­ingly frozen in time, this quaint alpine ham­let was once one of Aus­tralia’s rich­est towns and its lov­ingly re­stored his­toric build­ings speak of that by­gone grandeur. On the doorstep of na­tional parks, rivers and snow­fields, there’s plenty to do and see in lovely Walhalla.

Sea­son’s de­light Walhalla’s de­cid­i­ous trees put on a glo­ri­ous au­tumn dis­play.
