Australia - Walhalla Goldfields Railway

Walhalla, Australia - A ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway is an unforgettable experience. As the train leaves Thomson Station, it crosses the historic and spectacular Thomson River Bridge and then travels over the winding and rising line towards Walhalla. This journey offers wonderful views of Stringer's Creek as it meanders down to the Thomson River.

As you pass vertical cliff faces and travel through narrow cuttings you will come to appreciate the effort needed to carve this line through such rugged and challenging country - a truly amazing engineering feat! Glancing down into Stringer's Creek Gorge you will notice that much of the line is constructed on a ledge edged by dry stone walls, still serving their purpose nearly one hundred years after placement.
