RvTrips' review

06 Jun 2015

The Waltzing Matilda Centre can be found in Elderslie Street Winton - this building also houses the Visitor Information Centre.  

Winton is where Banjo Paterson is believed to have written Waltzing Matilda and the song was first sung in one of the pubs in town. The Centre was built in 1998 after the centenary celebrations for the song and the displays are constantly evolving. The Waltzing Matilda Centre uses interactive displays to interpret the song and our history - lift the lid on one of the five Billy Cans to hear Australian bush yarns.

You can also visit the Qantilda Room - a timeline of the history of Winton from dinosaurs 95 million years ago, Aboriginal history (up to 40,00 years ago) settlement in the area, opal mining, the formation of QANTAS etc. Outside you will find a bottle room, machinery shed, vehicle shed, tools for working the land, a steam locomotive, railway items and a cottage that was moved to this site in 1988 - Christina Macpherson Cottage - full of items used in olden days. 

Back inside the Waltlzing Matilda Centre you will find the Coolibah Cafe and Station Store - plenty of gifts for sale.  Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time as this is a large Centre with plenty to see.
