Stringer’s Cottage is a charming one-bedroom miner’s cottage on the outskirts of the historic and quaint village of Walhalla.

While the cottage is extremely cosy in Winter, you’ll find it refreshingly cool in Summer as it is nestled deep in the shady Stringer’s Gorge. While staying at Stringer's Cottage you will experience the serenity of a real bush environment. It is very peaceful and private with the only sounds the birds and the rushing water of Stringer's Creek below.

Wake up to the sounds of birds and see wallabies, echidnas and lyrebirds in the wild. Explore the creeks and rivers, pan for gold, throw in a fishing line or enjoy a swim or a walk while staying at this beautiful cottage.

(Please note , there may be a slight surcharge School or Public Holidays).

This is a small 2 person cottage and not suitable for everybody. Be warned, there is a short staircase down to it from the road.

The cottage is solar powered and eco friendly, running on 12v power and LPG gas. You have access to the whole cottage and garden area.

Nestled above Stringer’s Creek and shaded by massive mountain ash and black-wood trees, it is private and secluded, yet only a short walk to the town centre.

Everything is walking distance, and the cottage sits above the tourist railway line. There is off-road parking for your vehicle next door, beside the wood shed at the Coach House. It is ideal to park and unload here if there is no one staying at the Coach House, but as a courtesy to guests use your own staircase down from the road at all other times.


You are 10 minutes walking distance from the pub which is closed on Tuesday. Book ahead because they may close early on other days. Walk a further 10 minutes from here to reach the rest of the town. Rawson is a 10 minute drive and has a General Store open most days. Erica is 20 minutes away and has a pub open for meals most days. Mt St Gwinear is 30 minutes away with toboganning and cross-country skiing and Mt Baw Baw an hours drive away for downhill skiing.
Please note this is a remote location with limited phone and Wifi access, and the Walhalla General Store is not always open and has limited stock. Nearest petrol is Moe.
Once you have booked, I will forward a Welcome email with further details re access and key code. If you haven't received this, remind me as you may not be able to call once there.

Stringers cottage was exactly as its described. We had the most amazing relaxing weekend at Stringers cottage. Anna has ensured all the little things are available in the cottage to make the stay easy. It was the perfect spot to disconnect from everything (no cell reception) have a conversation, get outdoors and enjoy the local walking tracks. We decided to go on the ghost tour which was brilliant Sally provided a fantastic insight to the history of the community in its hay day. Would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet weekend away close to Melbourne....

Stringers cottage is really cute and cosy and we really enjoyed our 2 nights there. However, we had a few problems with the power supply, needing to limit what we had switched on or plugged in.
Walhalla is a really cute town and the locals are all lovely.
