The new center is impressive and it contains the story of the local area as well as the story behind that famous song. There is a cafe out the front and an impressive art gallery attached, don't miss it if you like Australian Art.

We saw the old Centre and this new one is fantastic. There is a lovely eatery attached to the centre. Beautifully presented inside and outside. Worth a visit.

If you are in the area, you probably will want to visit this center although it really isn't worth the money. What little there is to see is well presented. There is an outdoor café available, but the flies tend to be bothersome. There is...More

If you had never been to the Matilda Centre before the fire, it's well worth a look. However about 80+% of the displays are the same as pre-fire, so if you have been there before, it's not really worth the trip for the small amount...More

Tthis centre has survived a fire and been rebuilt bigger and better. It offer a cafe with fantastic food and a gift shop. All reasonably priced. Great history of the Winton area where aussie icon songs have been composided.

Lots to see here. Take your time going through the exhibits making sure you don't miss all the good stuff outside. Small children may get bored quickly.
