Information

The Combo Waterhole, though picturesque, doesn’t seem to be particularly appealing, as one of a number of semi-permanent billabongs along the Diamantina River south-east of Kynuna, it’s part of the Combo Waterhole Conservation Park, and is a wildlife refuge. However, it’s said to be the setting for Australia’s unofficial national anthem, Waltzing Matilda.

Written by A.B. "Banjo" Patterson in 1895 while visiting Dagworth Station in western Queensland ,
It is a great spot for an overnight camp,with a picnic table provided, Approximately 54klm to the turn off toward Winton from Kynuna.
