This is in Winton. The cafe has wonderful meals. It also had a world war I display, which gave us a great idea of all the many people from this district that joined up. I also gained a much more comprehensive idea of the origins...More

This centre was fantastic...loads of information on "Waltzing Matilda"....great snapshot of the history on the Winton area over the years. The collection of artificers was extensive. Well worth the visit.

Spent several hours here, very interesting. Only thing I missed was hearing Walzing Matilda playing in the background. It was sung in the theatre, but all quiet in the rest.

The original museum was destroyed by fire and this newly opened building is well designed for the purpose. It is a shame that many exhibits were lost and those on display are modest but interesting. It tells the story well and the machinery and other...More

Despite the new state of the art building, the exhibit was disappointing. We expected more for the concession entrance fee of $27.

We had expected so much from the newly rebuilt Waltzing Matilda Centre. We were disappointed. The actual paid section 'behind the magic wall' felt like a very expensive room in Queensland museum. There were 4 of us and we all heard only part of (or...More
