Next time you take a trip on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway, ask to join the KOOKABURRA KIDS CLUB (free to ALL children up to the age of 10 – no personal details held) and receive your FREE sticker. Look for them in our gullies and treetops along your train journey to Thomson Station.
Did you know Kookaburras usually eat small animals like mice, small birds, lizards and snakes, living in family groups around our mountain region? Young kookaburras help their parents to hunt and care for the smaller birds – they are best known for their loud call, which sounds a bit like laughter. Listen out and tell us how many you see or hear as a devoted Kookaburra Club member.
Accommodation and local information
The Walhalla & Mountain Rivers region is located on the southern edge of the Victorian Alps. Just over 2 hours to the east of Melbourne or 30 minutes north of the Latrobe Valley, the region is home to the towns of Erica, Rawson and Walhalla. It also includes the localities of Moondarra, Coopers Creek, Aberfeldy and the ski resort at Mt Baw Baw – Melbourne’s closest ski resort. The region is blessed with natural beauty in the Baw Baw National Park, Tyers State Park, Moondarra State Park and state forest makes up nearly all of the area in addition to the towns. Walhalla Historic Township is the jewel, not only in our local area’s crown, but also for Gippsland and Victoria.
