Walhalla is a small, picturesque and historic mountain township in the Gippsland district's Baw Baw Ranges in Victoria, in the south-eastern corner of mainland Australia.
At its peak, some 5,000 people lived in and around Walhalla, the centre of a pioneer
goldfield that extended to the nearby towns of Aberfeldy, Toombon, Donnelly's Creek, Red Jacket and Jericho to the north and west, and Cooper's Creek, Happy Go Lucky and Jubilee to the south and east.
Only a handful of permanent residents live there today, but in the last decades of the 19th century, it was the heart of one of the most vibrant gold mining districts in the world, and a major influence in shaping the prosperity of a newly founded state.
