The SpaceStringer’s Cottage features a queen size bed with a luxuriously warm doona and plenty of pillows. The bed is made, and sheets and towels are provided as part of the rental price. Bedside tables and reading lamps complete the picture. The bedroom has windows opening on to a bushland setting, and a fireplace which adds to the romantic ambience. Firewood is provided and the glass-fronted wood burning fireplace will burn efficiently day and night to keep the cottage cosy in Winter. In Summer, Stringer’s Cottage is a great escape from the heat, set where it is in the shady Stringer’s Gully. Leave the door open, screen door closed and enjoy the valley breezes, the smell of eucalyptus and the sound of the creek as it rushes by below. The large bedroom features two comfy armchairs and a wide selection of books and magazines to while away the time. The CD/radio keeps you in touch with the modern world, and there is a small selection of CDs though you might want to bring your own. If you have an iPod, don’t forget your connection cord. The galley kitchen has fridge, stove, oven and plenty of crockery and cutlery, and there is a small supply of complimentary tea, coffee and milk provided for your arrival. The kitchen counter overlooks Stringer’s Creek and there are two stools so you can sit and enjoy the view while you dine. There is a separate shower with instantaneous gas hot water and a separate indoor toilet and hand basin. The cottage is light and bright with its own porch and outdoor dining area, cosy in Winter, cool in Summer. Steps lead up to the road where you are just a short walk to the village. Please note there are approximately 35 steps so pack lightly! However, parking is off- road next to the Coach House wood shed, and is all on the one level for unloading when you first arrive. If no-one is in the Coach House feel free to use the driveway to walk in and out if that is easier. You have access to the whole cottage and an outdoor garden area and outdoor setting. The property is not fenced, and is reached by a staircase down from the road. Minimum 2 nights though this can be negotiated with the owner. A slight surcharge applies for 1 night only stays, or for long weekends and public holidays. I am not there but can be contacted in an emergency, day or night on the mobile phone. While staying at Stringer's Cottage you will experience the serenity of a real bush environment. It is very peaceful and private with the only sounds the birds and the rushing water of Stringer's Creek below. The scenic Walhalla Tourist Train runs Wednesdays and weekends, and the gold mine tours run the same days. There are walking ghost tours on the weekends. You are 10 minutes walking distance from the pub and about 20 minutes from the rest of the town. Rawson is a 10 minute drive, Erica 20 minutes, Mt St Gwinear 30 minutes away with toboganning and cross-country skiing and Mt Baw Baw an hours drive away for downhill skiing. Everything is walking distance, and the cottage sits above the tourist railway line. There is off-road parking for your vehicle next door, beside the wood shed at the Coach House. It is ideal to park and unload here if there is no one staying at the Coach House, but as a courtesy to guests use your own staircase down from the road at all other times. You do not require a 4WD though there are lots of local tracks to explore if you do have one. This is a small 2 person cottage and not suitable for everybody. Be warned, there is a short staircase down to it from the road. You have access to the whole cottage and garden area. You have the property to yourself, but I am just a phone call away if you have any questions or problems. A minimum 1 night stay may be possible but you need to contact the host as a slight surcharge will apply. Guest AccessCottage and small garden area. The property is not fenced. Once booked you can access the House Manual/Instructions and get all the details re key access etc. This is located under the Basics tab. Interaction with GuestsI do not interact with guests. This is your private space. I am available by phone only but have contacts in town if assistance is needed by you urgently. The NeighborhoodYou will enjoy the peace and quiet of Walhalla. Be aware the Coach House is close by and there may be guests staying there. Tour the Long Tunnel Goldmine or take the tourist train on a short trip through the valley. The pub is a 10 minute walk and then it's a further 10 minutes to the rest of the shops. The gold mine is a further 10 minutes. You can walk to the top of the town along the road in half an hour, depending on your pace, and return via the walking track that gives a view over the town. This track continues a further 5 kilometres to Thomson River and you can catch the tourist train back if you time it right. c Getting AroundYou can get around to most places on foot or by car. A 4WD is not necessary though you will be able to explore more with one. There is a Rail Trail between Walhalla and Erica so bring your bikes.

Of course, you can just sit back with a glass of wine and soak up the atmosphere while gazing into the fire or enjoy the views across Stringers Gorge. Stringers Creek flows through the valley directly below the house and the only noise to disturb the tranquility is that of the rushing creek, the calls of the black cockatoos, kookaburras and lyrebirds, or the whistle of the steam train as it passes by. The Master bedroom is huge and opens off the lounge. It features a queen size bed, down doona, bedside lamps, a Persian rug and antique furnishings and more stunning bushland views.

(Please note we run on 12v power, so no hairdryers! There is limited 240 power available to charge phones, cameras and computers). DRIVING DIRECTIONS 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. NOTE: GPS, Google Maps, Tom Tom and phone maps do not show this region accurately if at all and you may not even get coverage past Moe.

Walhalla Goldfields Railway This unique narrow gauge 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. The Train operates on Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays, public and school holidays, leaving Walhalla at 11am, 1pm and 3pm (June - August no 3pm train). Return fares are $20 per adult and $15 for kids. Long Tunnel Extended Mine Tour This was once one of the world's richest gold mines and over 13 tonnes was removed from this mine making it one of the most successful in Australia. Today you can venture deep inside the hillside on a 45 minute guided tour. Family (2 adults and up to 6 children): $49.50. Adults: $19.50 Concession and children under 16: $15.00 Mine tours are conducted on weekends and during school and public holidays at midday, 2 and 3 o'clock and Monday to Friday at 1.30pm. Gold Prospecting Bring along your gold pan and try your luck in Stringer's Creek which runs through the town. They're still mining for gold in Walhalla and there must be loads more gold still around, so why not give it a go. Bushwalking 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". Tramway Walking Track Shorter and easier walks are numerous around the area, but one not to miss is along the old tram track, a picturesque walk overlooking the town on what was once a rail line taking timber to the mines. This gives you breathtaking views of the town and there are steep access paths opposite the hotel, the General Store, at the band Rotunda, the mine and at the North Gardens Camping Ground. For the non climbers you can drive up to the mine and it is a flat walk from there. You can walk this all the way to Thomson Station, though the last section is a steep downhill walk (approximately 6 kms). You can then catch the train back to Walhalla if you've timed it right. (Adults $15 one way). Walhalla Cricket Ground If you are still keen, another well known trek is up to the Cricket Ground. It begins opposite Spetts Cottage, on the right hand side of the road between the Star Hotel and the Long Tunnel Mine. It is a steep 45 minute walk, but worth it to see the ground which was carved out of the top of the hill when flat land was at a premium. Wander along Stringer's Creek, or take the more energetic track to old Maidentown and hunt for relics from last century. Take the train to Thomson Station and do the 6 kilometre return walk which ends up skirting the town on the old tramway line. A little further afield is the beautiful walk to Mushroom Rocks, a fascinating geological formation. Bike Riding Get out your bikes and ride the Rail Trail from Thomson Station to Erica, or try some of the many bush paths and 4WD tracks. There's plenty of wildlife to see such as wallabies, kookaburras, lyrebirds and black cockatoos, not to mention snakes so do take care. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and beautiful vegetation including tree ferns, mountain ash and native orchids. Skiing In Winter, the snow fields of Mt St Gwinear are just half an hour away with excellent snow for sightseeing, tobogganning, cross country skiing or snow shoeing. The slopes are not at all crowded so it is a great place for beginners or small children to get their first taste of the Victorian snowfields. Slopes are patrolled and there is a heated shelter for day trippers. Equipment is available for hire from Erica just 20 minutes away. Alternatively, for downhill skiing the South Face Road gives easy access to the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort. This is a one hour, 45k drive and the first half is sealed, the second half gravel, but no 4WD required. Be on the ski slopes in just one hour. There is a kids' toboggan run with toboggans for hire, and a range of ski slopes to suit all levels of skier. Food, drink and souvenirs are available at the Resort. Ski gear is also available for hire at Mt Baw Baw or Erica. Always carry snow chains or you may be refused entry. These are also available for hire from Erica Ski Hire. Fishing There is great fishing to be done in the upper reaches of the nearby Thomson River. Swimming There is safe swimming in the waterhole on Stringer's Creek. You can also take a 15 minute drive to Coopers Creek where there is good swimming with a waterhole and swing rope, mini rapids to go down on with the lilo, and some great exploring to be done up the river. Museum, Gift Shop, Information Centre & Post Office Open 7 days a week and is well worth a look through. Call them for information on day tours and activities in and around Walhalla, including bookings for the Ghost Tour. Ghost Tours These exciting and informative tours run 8.30 p.m Saturday nights during Daylight Savings, and 7.30 p.m all other Saturday nights. Extra tours on holidays and Halloween, or by appointment. Adults $25, children $18.
