This song that started as an accidental collaboration in outback Queensland in 1895 went on to inspire a nation during World War II and following Banjo Patterson's death in 1941.

'Waltzing Matilda: Australia's Accidental Anthem' written by a criminal barrister, is a forensic history of the events, the people and the places that led to the writing of Australia's Internationally famous song. This evidence-based approach dispels many of the myths and historic inaccuracies that have become folklore.

The facts about the swagman, the contribution of Christina Macpherson and Sarah Riley and the timing and the place of the composition are all revealed.
