Winton and Waltzing Matilda

May 31  Winton has the claim to fame that it is the home of the famous Aussie ditty, Waltzing Matilda. Indeed, we dined at the local hotel in the room where it was first played in or around 1895. There is a museum in Winton dedicated solely to the song and its history. Spot the camels we met on the road into Winton from Longreach.
