Ten of us enjoyed the day at Walhalla. We met a larger turnout from the East Gippsland Photographic Society, helped them with a group photo, and then dispersed and drifted and bumped into each other taking photos through the town.
There were autumn leaves, the bandstand, the fire station on a bridge, the old church, and the old strongroom which saw 76 tons of gold go by. There were pretty cottages, some larger new B&Bs, and there are some reasonably authentic restored buildings. And electricity!
Lunch was in an excellent cafe (good pies, good coffee, good people). The after lunch option was a visit to the mountainside cemetery, and a train ride down and back through Stringers Gorge.
