It's a cute little railway but the star of the show is the deep gorge through which it runs. Spectacular scenery and a fun way to spend an hour or so.

We had a day out at Walhalla. interesting old town with plenty of history. We decided to take the train ride and asked if our dog could come, answer was yes, the staff at the station were very pleasant and accommodating telling great local stories. The scenery had great views of the river below and large ferns and trees above.... More

The walhalla light show was a great night. Lovely little village. Lots of history whilst walking around. Long drive, but well worth the visit. Plenty to see. Lots of great little shops.

I loved the railway as it followed the creek to Thompson river nestled into the side of the mountain. A 20 minute journey to Thomson then a 20min wait while we skimmed stones underneath the bridge the back again. Ensure you sit on the river side of the train to enjoy the views otherwise its a little boring staring at... More

The crew were very informative and have obviously put in many hours of hard work to restore the line. The town of Walhalla was interesting and a stop... More

The goldfields railway is a lovely way to spend some time in Walhalla. The journey is very scenic and takes approximately 20 minutes in each direction. There's not much to do at the other end, so expect to be catching the next train back. There are some BBQ facilities which were not operational on our visit. All of the staff... More
