Australia’s Waltzing Matilda Centre (50 Elderslie St., Winton, QLD, Australia; phone +61 07 4657 1466, www.matildacentre.com.au) is scheduled to reopen in April 2018, almost three years after being completely destroyed by a fire. 

The museum is dedicated to the song “Waltzing Matilda,” written by Banjo Paterson in 1895 and considered Australia’s unofficial national anthem. Also housed at the center will be the Qantilda Pioneer Place Museum, which displays artifacts pertaining to the area’s pioneer history.

Open hours and entry fees were not known at press time.
