Winton - Monday Night 8:55 P.M.

The central western Queensland town of Winton (population about 1000) has a number of claims to fame. It was one of the founding towns of Australia's QANTAS airline and the place where the iconic Aussie song "Waltzing Matilda" was penned and first performed. Night-life, however, appeared somewhat subdued on a recent evening as my wife and I walked down the main street after a meal at Tattersall's Hotel. I felt that the "fire a cannon down the main street" ambiance required recording.
