A few interesting facts about the town of Walhalla...


  • 'Walhalla' is derived from 'Valhalla', also known as the 'hall of the slain' in Nordic mythology.
  • The current population of Walhalla is made up of around 20 permanent residents.
  • It was originally founded as a gold-mining community in early 1863.
  • Several major public buildings including the Mechanics Institute and Star Hotel were destroyed in two fire events in 1944 and 1951 and a number of buildings were destroyed without being rebuilt.
  • In December 1998, Walhalla became the last mainland community in Australia to be connected to the electricity grid.
  • Ghostly figures and disembodied footsteps have been reported at the Long Tunnel Mine.

PostSubject: Some of My Views on Walhalla...!   Wed Oct 15, 2008 11:20 am

Um... I might just add a few interestings bits & Pieces on this location as well if I may...?

(ie): The Walhalla Cemetary is said to be one of the most Haunted in the Area... And in a Local Paper there was a Front page article a few years ago and a certain "Cursed?" Grave Site... (ie): Supposidly... If Anybody peers down into the Semi~Colapsed Grave , They are "Cursed" , Me thinks it might be a case of... "Suggestive Thought?" Perhaps...?

Hi! No not suggestive thought, is the Mitchell plot and reads.
Oh, let my sudden doom, A warning be to all, E'er whilst thou bendest o'er my tomb, Thou may as quickly fall.
