|Über uns||If there is one song that lives in the hearts of all Australians, it’s Waltzing Matilda. Destroyed by fire in June 2015, the Waltzing Matilda Centre has been reborn as a world class Museum. Opening APRIL 20th 2018.|
|Mission||Our vision is that the Centre is a cultural and heritage icon fulfilling its unique role in the Australian psyche as the home of Waltzing Matilda, inspiring pride in our community today and in our past achievements and, acknowledgement as the national authority on all matters relating to our national song.|
The Waltzing Matilda Centre is the only attraction in the world dedicated to a song. Self guided tours allow you to discover our amazing attraction at your own pace. The introduction to the complex is the Billabong Theatrette where the ghost in the billabong tells his story of the poem, Waltzing Matilda, bringing the story to life during an unforgettable audio¬visual presentation that touches the hearts of those who see it – Australians and international visitors alike. The Legends Exhibition Room offers an interactive display of the history, the legend and the romance behind the song. The hologram must be seen to be believed.
The Qantilda Museum is dedicated to Winton and the history of our district. It honours some of the country’s great pioneers and icons.
Winton is also the birthplace of Qantas, that other great Australian icon. The Qantilda Museum, takes visitors through the origins of Qantas and the pioneering history of the Winton district. The extent of the historical collect¬ion, including a steam engine, the Jeffery Quad 4x4, machinery, military display and Christina Macpherson Cottage ensures the museum rates as one of the most extensive Australiana type museums in regional Australia.
