Walhalla is full of history
The first people making history here were the Traditional Custodians of Country – the people of the Kurnai Nation.
This episode focuses on the people who made history in 1888 during Walhalla’s Great Fire – the heroes and victims. Walhalla had a population of 40,000 people at one stage and two newspapers. Having local journalists created a lot of content for history.
