We visited Walhalla on Sat Sept 1st, a rainy and cold day. What a gorgeous drive through the Mountain Ash Forrest. The Railway, all staffed by volunteers was a real treat. Narrow ,slow and ricketty - fabulous. Enjoyed every second. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
The WGR usually operate on Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday with three return trips each operating day.
They do have a web site - Walhalla Goldfields Railway. This will give you the up to date times and fares
