Artist's Description

BEST VIEWED LARGER

Nestled between Tidbinbilla and Gibraltar Ranges, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is only a 40 minute drive from Canberra’s City centre. Visitors to Tidbinbilla will discover many unique plants and animals and experience a valley rich in Aboriginal heritage.

Tidbinbilla has a stunning array of plants and animals. The broad habitats, that include wetlands, grasslands, dry forests, wet forests and sub-alpine, support a wide range of wildlife including lyrebirds, kangaroos, possums, wombats, echidnas, platypus and emus. Tidbinbilla also plays an important role in captive wildlife management, in particular the breeding programs for the endangered Northern Corroboree Frog and the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby.

Opened in April 2008, the Sanctuary at Tidbinbilla offers visitors a chance to have a hands on real life encounter with some of Australia’s most exciting and unique wildlife. It is a fascinating place where visitors can learn to appreciate nature in a purpose built captive facility. The Sanctuary is centred on an upgraded Tidbinbilla Wetlands which is a unique outdoor development. Featuring a ‘duck eye’ view walk in boat, a board walk, high quality exhibits, a scenic path system, visitor education, amenities and of course, wildlife. In essence, the entire 30 ha site is one large enclosure, ensuring that visitors experience local wildlife in their natural
setting.

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
Under the shade of a coolabah tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited ‘til his billy boiled
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me"

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”
And he sang as he watched and waited ‘til his billy boiled,
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me".

Down came a jumbuck to drink at that billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”.

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”
And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”.

Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred,
Down came the troopers, one, two, three,
“Where’s that jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tucker bag?”
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”.

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”
“Where’s that jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tucker bag?”,
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”.

Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong,
“You’ll never take me alive”, said he,
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”.

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me”
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.”
“Oh, You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.”
