We guarantee you will enjoy our entertainment at the Matilda Country Tourist Park.
Bush Poetry is an integral part of your Winton experience. Banjo Paterson wrote 'Waltzing Matilda' at the Combo Waterhole, near Winton and the song was first performed here before the Governor of Queensland in 1895.
Gloria Hitson prepared campfire meals and recited poetry for tourists 20 years ago here in the Matilda and there has been a poet in residence in the park ever since.
Melanie Hall and Susie Carcary are the headline act over the winter season. These 2 pocket rockets will give you a great night of comedy and song. The girls will take you on a journey that will make you laugh and cry. Their passion for our wonderful lingo and our unique Aussie heritage will have you in stitches and bring back some memories. They perform a different show in the shed nightly at 7pm.
The Shed also features a great range of live music. Over the last winter season we wecolmed Graham Roger, country music singer and guitarist. If you liked Slim Dusty you'll love Graham Roger. Graham has won many awards and accolades at Tamworth and many other country music festivals. Graham performs for happy hour in the green shed nightly at 4.30pm.
Let's hark back to the good old travelling family bands and welcome two great families who are on the road with their own style of music and song.
The Lou Bradley Traveling Band cruised into Winton with Victorian family band, The Cartwheels and wowed us with their friendly and fantastic sound. A double bass, banjo, 2 guitars and 2 stunning voices combine to give you a wonderful afternoon's entertainment.
Lou and the Cartwheels perform at happy hour in the shed whenever they breeze into town.
"We reckon you'll rave about our entertainment all the way down the track!"
