Walhalla & Mountain Rivers Drive
Following Route 91 allows you to experience the natural beauty of the Walhalla & Mountain Rivers region. Walhalla is approximately a 45 minute drive from either Traralgon or Moe. You can navigate your way up through some of Gippsland’s beautiful bush scenery and return with lovely mountain views, passing scenic lookouts and the pretty towns of Rawson and Erica. Enjoy the impressive views from Petersons Lookout or relive some mining history on a walk to Horseshoe Bend Tunnel.
While in Walhalla, you can visit the historic buildings and museums, take a ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway or learn about the life of the gold miners with a tour through the Long Tunnel Extended Gold Mine. Stop in at The Stockyard in Rawson, an Aussie pub oozing in country character or the Erica Hotel Motel for a hearty pub meal. If its Devonshire Tea you’re after, stop in at 1914 Café in Erica. While its not a museum, there are plenty of photographs and historical tales on display.
