About the tour
Upon arrival into Walhalla, the unique narrow gauge railway and its beautiful 1920s replica train station greet you on the hillside below. Our station is where you can commence your journey along tracks through the spectacular gullies of Stringers Gorge across the Thomson River to the rail yards and platform of Thomson station.
A further kilometre along the road through the heritage township of Walhalla, past the mining slag heaps of times gone-by lies the entrance of the famous Long Tunnel Extended Gold Mine that produced over 13 tonnes of gold from the hills until its closure in 1914. Here you enjoy a guided tour underground and hear firsthand how the miners toiled by day and night in harsh and unforgiving conditions.
