Description

Combo's waterholes reputedly inspired Banjo Paterson to write Waltzing Matilda, Australia's most popular folk song. The waterholes are a refuge for wildlife during dry times, just as they provided shady picnic spots in 1895 for stagecoach passengers and residents of neighbouring stations.

The self-guided Combo Waterhole trail crosses some of Diamantina's River channels on historic stone-pitched overshots built more than a century ago across. The trail passes through Mitchell grass downs and winds along coolibah-lined channels. Interpretive signs along the way explore the area's rich natural and cultural heritage.
