"My children and I have spent a week at Valhalla every year for the past 10 years or so, since the kids were little. They refuse to stay anywhere else and are quite right! The lodge is in a great spot with views across to Mount P, past Front Valley, North P and beyond. Prime spot for the fireworks & you can (usually) ski down in the morning. Getting home is not a problem, with complimentary Hans vouchers. Cross country trails are right on the doorstep. Rooms are spacious, comfortable & clean, & the lounge is great for meeting fellow guests & relaxing before dinner. Kids have their own space in the lower lounge. Food is always good, & Kai (the manager) makes sure everything runs smoothly. Highly recommended" ...itchyfeet35

Originally Valhalla was designed by Swedish Architects Urs Gauchat and Julius Bokor for Jean Findlay in 1963. Construction was completed in 1965. Jean held a 45 year lease on the land and operated Valhalla as a ski and horse riding lodge until 1973 when animals became prohibited in the park by National Parks and Wildlife. The horse stables were situated on the sight where "The Stables" are now and through to the Nordic Shelter.
In 1975 Harold Droga purchased Valhalla as a private family residence. He was the mountain manager for Kerry Packer. Under National Park ruling, when Mr Droga departed the company it was reverted to a commercial lodge.
In 1985 Valhalla was sold at auction to the Ingham Family who transformed it into the luxury home-like lodge you see today.
In 2011 Valhalla Lodge was sold to an Australian family, the Johnsen's. As previous guests of Valhalla and with tradition in mind we have kept the successful formula to ensure that we continue to create the great holiday experience that Valhalla is renown for.
The Lodge continues to be looked after lovingly with several soft refurbishments over the past 5 off seasons including: new beds, linen and updated colour scheme, new curtains and blinds, new windows throughout, repainting inside and out, switching to a greener power with the conversion from oil burner to gas burner plus the removal of oil tanks and our latest project, the TV room update.
Valhalla is an Australian family owned ski lodge. We strive to provide exceptional ski lodge style accommodation and holiday experiences for our guests.
"Valhalla" means NORDIC HEAVEN
