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.

I ventured in to see the newly opened Waltzing Matilda Centre. The cost of entry is $30 per adult. You are given a set of headphones once you pay for your ticket and is explained that once inside the main exhibition the audio commentary will activate as you walk around the exhibitions. Well that might be what they want to happen, however that didn't happen. The headphones didn't work correctly, if they worked at all. It was not just my set, others in the exhibition were having the same problem. Everyone just took them off, this was very disappointing. The centre light glass display is very impressive and the lighting and sound is very relaxing in the exhibition hall. There is still some work going on in and around the centre to complete.
You need to fix your headphones.

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.

Congratulations to the designers, builders and Winton Shire for the vision of an excellent building, it will certainly create interest and a must see in Western Qld, it was sad to hear the old Centre had burnt down, but something great and beautiful has come from that devastation. Just go and see for yourself, it is beautiful.
