Centennial Parklands – A Jolly Swagman’s Tale

Experience an important part of Australian history!

Pack your swag and travel back in time to find out about the life of a swagman back in the days.
Made famous by Banjo Patterson’s poem the Sundowner, the swagmen have become icons of Australian culture.

In times of hardship, men and women packed up all they had and went looking for work.
Listen to their stories and learn who Matilda and Billy were.

Meeting point: The Wild Play Discover Centre , Centennial Park
Date: 15th April 2021
Session Time: 10.30am -11.30am
