We took the return trip to Thomson but I’d love to take it one way and walk the other direction. Beautiful scenery and a relaxing trip. It was easy to imagine stepping back in time and imagining the long trip to Melbourne.

We had a very enjoyable train ride in the beautiful village of Walhalla. The return trip was approx. 1 hour. We would recommend not only going to Walhalla but also taking the Goldfields Train Trip.

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.

Hi Camexebe, Thomson Station is on the main Rd into Walhalla. It's 2 wheel drive friendly, and does have a car park. Hope this helps.

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
