Toongabbie: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Walhalla Historic Area


Walhalla, a rich gold producer for 50 years, is a remote and picturesque mountain township. It is hard to imagine a more difficult site for a town than the steep, narrow valley of Stringers Creek as it winds down through the dense forests of the Baws Baws. Yet in its heyday, between 1880 and 1895, more than 4000 people lived there.

The town is the start of the 650 km Australian Alps Walking Track to the ACT. But most people come to discover the remnants of a community that defied a forbidding environment in its quest for gold. The best way to see the town is on foot.

Walhalla Goldfields Railway


Ride with Walhalla Goldfields Railway through the spectacular Stringers Creek Gorge.

As you begin your journey and depart the Walhalla Heritage Precinct, 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 you 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.

In spring and summer wild flowers are prevalent 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.

Arj Barker: Organic (Traralgon)


'As always, I start with the finest free-range topics, nurture them until they're brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin'. Remember, my cruelty-free jokes are always tested on animals, and 100% goat-approved by the time you hear them. That's quality you can trust.'

*May contain traces of nuts

Arj Barker is arguably Australia's favourite American comedian. In recent years, he has spent more time in our country than his own and has come to understand our culture perhaps better than we understand it ourselves. His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.
