Holiday Rental House
The Coach House, Walhalla is just a short trip to Mt Baw Baw ski fields and the rivers and bush walks of Gippsland. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom family holiday home located in the beautiful Stringer's Gorge, and will accommodate 8 comfortably. (Booking price is based on a minimum 2 people, additional costs apply for extra people). Nestled above Stringer's Creek and shaded by massive Mountain Ash and Blackwood trees, it is private and secluded, yet only a short walk to the town centre. It is Solar Powered and eco friendly. While the house is extremely cosy in Winter, you'll find it refreshingly cool in Summer as it is nestled deep in the cool and shady Stringer's Gorge. Wake up to the sounds of birds and see wallabies and lyrebirds in the wild. Explore the creeks and rivers, pan for gold,...The Coach House, Walhalla is just a short trip to Mt Baw Baw ski fields and the rivers and bush walks of Gippsland.

Wake up to the sounds of birds and see wallabies and lyrebirds in the wild. Explore the creeks and rivers, pan for gold, throw in a fishing line or enjoy a swim or a walk, while staying at this charming getaway. Situated in the beautiful Walhalla Valley, The Coach House is just 2 hours east of Melbourne. The property features a spacious master bedroom with queen sized bed, second bedroom with double bed and third bedroom with a 2 bed bunk featuring cosy wool doonas. All bedrooms are upstairs and lead off the lounge with views across the gorge and down to the Walhalla Goldfields Tourist Railway. (The steam train runs on weekends, Wednesdays and public holidays and is a must for the kids). There is also a downstairs games room with a bunk. The Coach House features a very comfortable lounge and an efficient wood fire ensures a cozy retreat. LPG gas ensures you the luxury of a hot shower, gas cooking and heating. There is a pool table, piano and bunk bed in the downstairs games room, while upstairs there is a well stocked games cupboard plus plenty of books and puzzles for kids and adults. There is a radio/CD player if you're craving the more modern creature comforts. Otherwise, sit around the piano for a sing-along. There is a spacious upstairs lounge rooms and 2 dining areas so there's plenty of room to spread out, not to mention plenty of outdoor space and furnishings including a dining setting, lawn chairs, BBQ and a hammock to really get into the swing of things! Watch the steam train as it chugs by just a stone's throw away on its way to Thomson Station. Downstairs is a well stocked kitchen/dining room with a modern gas fridge, gas oven/cooktop, plenty of bench space and a dining table and chairs for up to 8. The downstairs bathroom features a deep bathtub and seperate shower and there is a seperate toilet and wash-stand off the downstairs lounge room. This second lounge/games room has a piano, bookshelves, bunk and pool table and features views of the historic railway line. Polished timber floors and cosy carpets are another highlight of this rustic retreat. It is a genuine getaway-from-it-all experience. The downstairs gas heater takes the chill off in Winter, and there is a phone connected for local, emergency and incoming calls only. There is ample parking. (Please note we run on 12v power, so no hairdryers and no sleep apnoea machines! There is limited 240 power available to charge phones, cameras and computers). DRIVING DIRECTIONS Walhalla is located just 2.5 hours East of Melbourne and is an easy and scenic drive through Gippsland. Take the City Link, Monash Freeway (M1) which then becomes the Princes Freeway (M1), then take the Moe Exit. (Just look for the 'Golden Arches'). From here, follow the brown 'Tourist Drive' signs to Walhalla via Erica (C466), then 3ks past there turn right to Rawson (C481) then left to Walhalla 1km past Rawson (C461). The Walhalla Coach House is the first house you see as you enter Walhalla and is signposted. To reach it take the first turn right up a dirt track, “Happy Go Lucky Road” (also known as Bruntons Bridge Road), which is just after the “Walhalla” and blue “Bus Turning” signs on the road in. Look for the Stringer's Cottage and Coach House signs sign on the cream picket fence to your right and you have arrived. The driveway to your right leads down to the Coach House and parking for Stringer's Cottage. It's a steep drive and a 3 point turn at the bottom to get to the house. NOTE: GPS, Google Maps, Tom Tom and phone maps do not show this region accurately if at all and you may not even get coverage past Moe. More

About the neighbourhood
There are plenty of good walks to do in and around Walhalla. First and foremost is the Australian Alpine Walking Track which starts right here in Walhalla and goes all the way to Canberra! (650 km to ACT). You can do a shorter section of this on a 40km, 2 day 3 night fully guided and catered walk from Mt Baw Baw to Walhalla. Check for details in the publication by John and Lyn Daly - 'Take a Walk in Kosciuszko National Park'. The unique narrow gauge Walhalla Tourist train offers a spectacular journey as it winds its way down Stringer's Creek Gorge from Walhalla, over the historic Thomson River Bridge and into Thomson Station. A group of enthusiastic volunteers have rebuilt the railway line from the Thomson River to Walhalla with further plans to extend it all the way to Erica. Long ...
How to get there
Take the City Link, Monash Freeway (M1) which then becomes the Princes Freeway (M1), then take the Moe Exit. ( look for the “Golden Arches”). Follow the brown “Tourist Drive” signs to Erica/Rawson. (C466) and Walhalla. Turn right to Rawson which is 3km past Erica and signposted. Travel along this road through Rawson, then left to Walhalla 1km past Rawson (C461). The Walhalla Coach House is the first house you see as you enter Walhalla. Take the first turn right up a dirt road which is “Happy Go Lucky Track” (also known as Bruntons Bridge Road), and is just after the “Walhalla” and blue “Bus Turning” signs. Look for the white ‘Coach House’ sign on the picket fence to your right.
