On the road to .... Walhalla

Wednesday 29 April 2015
 
After a lazy start to the morning, we headed off to Walhalla for the Goldfields  train trip.  The weather was lovely, sunny but chilly and no fog or rain - just perfect for a train trip.  The train left the Walhalla Station at 11 am and we settled in to one of the carriages, and got our cameras out to capture the beautiful scenery along the track.

The Walhalla railway line was a 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge railway located in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. The line ran from Moe to the former gold-mining town and popular tourist destination of Walhalla. Construction began in 1904. The line closed in sections from 1944 to 1954.

After our lovely train trip we headed to the local hotel "the Wally" for lunch.  The meal was huge and we all enjoyed it and afterwards went for a walk around the town as we needed the exercise after such a good lunch.
