This all inclusive place is a must. The Museum, the Info centre and a cafe.I did the lot. I especially enjoyed the old time stuff out the back of the building. And when I needed info, the guys were so helpful.

The centre has been rebuilt into a modern, stunning museum. The displays are informative and use a good mix of technology and original artefacts to convey the information.

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.

We had been looking forward to seeing this new centre after having been to the site of the "Billabong" on our way through. Although I understand the previous museum burnt down, the new one is very short on substance. A huge amount of money has...More
