By the Billabong, oil on board, 6"x6"

On a trip with my sister who likes to go 4 Wheel Driving so she managed to get us off the beaten track somewhere near Crowdy Head in Northern NSW Australia. Billabongs always remind me of the Aussie bush song 'Waltzing Matilda'.  

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong

Under the shade of a coolibah tree

And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled

Who'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me?
