A trip down memory lane!

This is a very comprehensive collection on items from Australia's past. Well worth looking at. I love to visit this Centre to reflect on how people's lives were years ago.

There is much to see in this small museum. Learn about the early life of the pioneers and and there is a small display of a few items salvaged from the fire that sadly destroyed the Waltzing Matilda Centre. Well done to all those committed to keep this going for visitors.

So worth the visit..honestly. There is a small entrance fee to view the most eclectic displays of memorabilia in one place. From household items, clothing/shoes to everyday objects...medicinal,photographic,machinery,farm implements. Something for everyone. Great bottle collection. If you don't walk out of there saying"I remember mum or grandma etc used one of those" then you must be crazy. Such nostalgia..the good... More

Well worth the entry fee - some great old photo's, interesting exhibits (especially machinery, vehicles and horse-drawn carriages) and a lovely old train carriage. Will be fantastic when the Centre is rebuilt later this year.

Still a very proud centre to visit. The volunteers are so passionate about what is there that it is worthwhile just for their stories. A tough wild place to bring up a family and it is reflective on how well they have set out what is remaining. A town meeting was held just before we were there and almost a... More

So glad to see that the Waltzing Matilda Statue and Music board survived the fire! It still makes a great photo opportunity! Sad to see such a big empty space where the Centre once stood! On a previous trip had decided to leave the visit until our next trip! What a mistake that was considering the fire!

Disappointed that we didn't get to this attraction. Only thing we did was take a photo in front if the Banjo Patterson statue. The museum that is there in place still charging $20 per family but not a lot to see.

If you're into your history then this place is for you. There is so much to look at and the collection is great. For only a small fee of $10 this place is totally worth it
