Situated in Victoria, Australia, Walhalla came into existence in the late 1860s as a vibrant gold-mining community, reaching its zenith with a population of around 4,000 residents. Fast forward to 2024, and the town has undergone a significant transformation, currently hosting a modest population of 21 permanent residents. Walhalla has become the chosen location for Hollywood to film Liam Neeson's highly anticipated blockbuster, "Ice Road 2."
Check out the video below featuring lots more on-set footage and filming of stunt sequences.
This quiet little town was turned into a bustling Hollywood set for the filming of Liam Neeson's Ice Road 2: Road to the Sky movie. The town was converted into a Nepalese village for the second instalment of Liam Neeson's 2021 movie Ice Road (2021).
