  • The tunnel tour takes about 45 mins. Learnt alot about the mining days and how difficult it was for miners. Good tour and well worth the price, just 20 dollars pp.  more »
  • Fantastic experience. The historic events behind the place are incredible. Well worth visiting with kids over 6yrs old as they take an interest.
  • This is definitely the highlight of our trip to Walhalla. We've been to other similar attractions in Victoria, and in my opinion this tour offers a much more authentic experience. Rae-Anne our tour guide, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and kept everyone's attention. Highly recommended.
