Walhalla is a tiny town deep in Gippsland in eastern Victoria. A former gold-mining town, it’s claim to fame is as the last town in Victoria to be connected to the electricity grid in 1998. In it’s hey day, Walhalla had a population of around 2,500 but these days there are only about 20 residents. A lot of people have holiday homes in the area though.
The area around Walhalla is so mountainous they had to build the cemetery into the hill. It’s a very steep 20 min walk up to the cemetery. We didn’t have time to walk up there but I’m told it’s really interesting.
