We were looking forward to visiting the new version of the Waltzing Matilda Centre after visiting the old one which burnt down 2 years ago. The new building is spectacular and the displays are good but we didn't feel it was as good as the...More

Newly opened centre. Lots of interesting information and donated old stuff. Needs a better way of presenting the history of the place, as I felt some information are missing and could be better presented. Staff very pleasant, lots of parking in front of the building.

Do not need much time to go through the museum. Interesting area out the back where there are old trains and living accommodation. Given headphones but they keep cutting out all the time.

Went in with high hopes. Something like $24,000,000. The audio kept cutting in and out. The displays for the size and height of building were minimal. Underwhelmed and took under a hour. Could not recommend as value at all. Very dissappointed.

Enjoyed going through this centre. New building is beautiful just can’t help but wonder how much they lost in the fire. Audio phones need a little work but it only opened 1wk ago. Staff very friendly.

A bit disappointed with the new centre, it has lost that charm with it being modern. I miss the billabong that welcomed you in the old centre. I was pleased to see that the rest of the buildings were saved and left in their original...More

The original attraction was burned down 3 years ago and the new building was officially opened last week. It is superbly designed with excellent displays and features. Out the back are several displays including a steam train, old vehicles and lots of bits and pieces....More
