Walhalla’s Historic Ghost Towns
(1/2 day 4WD Tour)
This 4WD passenger tour with Mountain-Top Experience explores historic ghost towns from the gold mining era, traveling along old coach roads and pack-horse trails along the ridges above Walhalla. Stories and old photos give an appreciation of the lifestyle of early pioneers (Incorporates Copper Mine Adventure).
We visit a copper mine with coloured rock and the ruins of an ingenious aussie-designed smelter. Abandoned lime kilns and quarries also reveal stories of Italian migrant workers and a link to Australia’s tallest building.
Departs from Rawson or Walhalla. Weekends or weekdays.
Phone booking essential.
$220 / Vehicle (1 to 4 passengers)
