VISIT THE MATILDA CENTRE..This is a wonderful exhibition of local and Aussie folklore..it has many exhibits to see includes a museum..different country implements exhibition..and I found the exhibit on The Queensland Light Horse a really first rate exhibit..there is also much here "hands on" for kids..I can understand why it was the winner of "The Significant Outback Attraction award in 2000 ...Also they sell freshly baked scones and damper..to have with a variety of coffees..
Costs about $12 to get in but you learn how the famous Aussie song came to be and why it is so revered. You are also treated to different versions of the song by various artists including Dame Edna and Slim Dusty. There is a very clever holographic display that focuses on the Aussie Outback among many other clever interactive displays available. The centre also houses a museum and small theatre which will keep memrobilia buffs enthralled. Ask for a Shin Plaster which covers payment into different attractions in Winton and the district.
