Windsor House has been classified “A” by the National Trust of Australia and is one of the oldest B & B’s in Australia, having been established in 1878. It can be found at Walhalla, a small town in the Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia, founded as a gold-mining community in early 1863 and at its peak home to around 2,500 residents. Today, the town has a population of less than 20 permanent residents, though it has a large proportion of houses owned as holiday properties. It attracts large numbers of tourists and is a major focus of the regional tourism industry. The town’s name is taken from an early gold mine in the area, named for the German hall of fame, the Walhalla temple (Valhalla from Norse legend).
