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.

I had read all the reviews and we were so excited as a family to go on a family getaway once the government eased restrictions after 4 months of COVID lockdown. We were bitterly disappointed. When we arrived there was a strong smell of mould...More
The coach house is one of those places you walk into and instantly feel relaxed and at home. We loved staying here. It has everything you need for cooking and is fully equipped. The beds are comfy the fire is warm and there is so...More
None of us expected to make the family memories that were made at Walhalla Coach House as well as in this historic town. I have no words, it's simply a place you must book and experience. The Eco family home, the thick front door, the...More
This place is totally awesome. It’s like stepping back in time with just the right amount of modern conveniences. So many amazing collectables do enjoy and so many activities to keep the kids occupied. It’s so close to everything and really there’s nothing at all...More

Thanks Julie. I'm glad you enjoyed it. (It was just lucky for you the people due in had cancelled that very week, so a win win!)
See you next time ;-)
Large but cosy, clean accommodation. Shame we weren't able to spend more time to enjoy the ambience of the log fires and no technology but managed to squeeze just enough into our short stay with lovely walk into town and cooking up a communal feast...More

Thank you for the lovely review. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
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.
