Matilda is a swag; the roll or bundle of possessions carried by an itinerant worker or swagman. The term to waltz Matilda is first recorded in the late 1880s, and if it hadn’t been for the poet Banjo Patterson it may have been short-lived. He penned the lyrics to the song about a swagman that became Australia’s famous national song, ‘Waltzing Matilda’, and strongly associated with our national identity; and has cemented the term Waltzing Matilda in the Australian imagination and psyche.
The Matilda is named after this national identity.
A comfortable room with a great, but subtle rustic feel; overlooks the rural scape from your bed. Enjoy!
