Overview

This enchanting wind chime is tuned to Australia's unofficial national anthem.

In the "land down under," the itinerant laborers who used to wander from town to town were called swagmen. Carrying their entire life on their back often in a bag called a "Matilda" these men traveled on foot, looking for work and trying to scratch out a meager living by shearing sheep and doing other odd jobs around the farm. They made their home wherever they lay their head. And like the American hobo, the swagman was frequently immortalized and romanticized in song. The most famous of these "bush ballads" is Waltzing Matilda. The lyrics, written by the renowned Australian poet Banjo Paterson, tell the story of one such swagman who does as he pleases and refuses to surrender his freedom. Known as Australia's "unofficial national anthem," Waltzing Matilda is beloved for its colorful story, enchanting melody and the irrepressible spirit it embraces.

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me."
And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me."
- Banjo Paterson


This chime carries a lifetime tuning guarantee.
