Run by volunteers, passionate about the mine, you go right into where the men worked, it is all well planned, plenty of lighting as you go, you always feel safe.

This was very well done by Richard who summarised the history of Walhalla whilst explains how hard it was to be a miner way back when. All run by volunteers and very professional.

We did the tour with Naomi and she was fantastic. Really informative and made the tour interesting. Seeing the gold mine itself was great and was an excellent piece of history. Well worth the money if you visit Walhalla

I didn’t, I had flat walking sandals on. We had to wear hard hats, provided, & probably covered in shoes would be good but not essential.
