“Winton's Waltzing Matilda Centre tells the story of Waltzing Matilda, Winton, and the Outback region.”
If there is one song that lives in the hearts of all Australians, it's "Waltzing Matilda". The song written by A.B. Banjo Paterson in 1895, has played a significant part in defining the Australian character. "Waltzing Matilda" inspires the Australian spirit. It can be a feel-good song, a rousing chorus or simply impart a feeling of nostalgia. It's sung at sporting events, in schools and by expatriates all over the world. The Waltzing Matilda Centre is inspired by the song penned by Banjo Paterson and embraced by the Australian people as their unofficial national anthem. The centre was built in 1998 after the centenary celebrations for the song, and is constantly evolving. The Waltzing Matilda uses today's technology and interactive displays to interpret the song, Australian history and what it is to be Australian.
