Walhalla Goldfields Railway Running Days - Walhalla Goldfields Railway
Stringers Creek Gorge
A ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway is an unforgettable experience. No matter what time of year you choose to travel there is always something special to see. In spring and summer wild flowers are prevelant throughout the gorge. Catch the breathtaking beauty of the autumn trees in April when they appear to light up sections of the valley.
Then in the winter Stringers Creek comes to life with increased water flows which spill over the attractive waterfall.
During the Easter school holiday period, trains operate on a daily basis - check the timetable for details.
Ride with Walhalla Goldfields Railway through the spectacular Stringers Creek Gorge. As you begin your journey and depart Walhalla Historic Township, you will travel through the station yard which lies between Stringers Creek and the cliff-face that underpins the Brunton's Bridge Road. After you leave the engine and carriage sheds behind the first kilometre and a half is almost entirely built over six large trestle bridges that criss-cross Stringers Creek Gorge in an effort to find anchorage for each bridge abutment. As the train winds it's way down hill you will pass through Happy Creek to begin the second half of your journey.
The train journey follows Stringers Creek to where it joins the Thomson River; then we travel across the historic and spectacular Thomson River Bridge to arrive at Thomson Station where you will have time to explore the area before returning to Walhalla.
We do NOT operate on days of TOTAL FIRE BAN in the West & South GippslandRegion.

All aboard the WGR!
A ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway is an unforgettable experience. As the train departs from Walhalla station, you leave behind the station yard girded on one side by a cliff underpinning the Bruntons Bridge road & on the other side by Stringers Creek. The engine shed marks the start of the steep descent down the narrow gorge.
