WALTZING MATILDA DAY / EASTER IN THE OUTBACK 

APRIL 4th - 6th 2015

 

Celebrate the 120th anniversary of the first performance of Banjo Paterson's Waltzing Matilda in the heart of Queensland.

 

The 6th April is Waltzing Matilda Day, commemorating the first public performance of the song at the North Gregory Hotel. Falling on Easter Monday gives us the opportunity really celebrate with a program jam packed with Banjo Paterson events.

 

The theme for Waltzing Matilda Day celebrations is "More then a song "as we celebrate his other famous works. MC and balladeer Geoffrey Graham will host and perform at the events.

 

The Waltzing Matilda Centre and the local Winton tourism businesses have combined to present a package that will look after you from your arrival on Friday by air or train to Longreach or Winton until Tuesday morning.
