A few months after the Shearer’s Strike in 1894, Paterson visited the Macpherson family – Bob Macpherson being the owner of the Dagworth Homestead. During his stay, Bob took Paterson around the station; stopping by the Combo Waterhole, Bob and Paterson found the skin of a recently killed sheep, guessing someone had made a meal of it. Upon finding this, Bob explained to him about an arsonist named Hoffmeister who he chased down with three policemen at the Combo Waterhole during the strike; however, rather than being captured, Hoffmeister shot himself.

Waltzing Matilda" is Australia's best-known bush ballad, and has been described as the country's "unofficial national anthem". The title was Australian slang for travelling on foot (waltzing) with one's belongings in a "matilda" (swag) slung over one's back. The song narrates the story of an itinerant worker, or "swagman", making a drink of billy tea at a bush camp and capturing a jumbuck (sheep) to eat when it comes to drink from the nearby billabong (watering hole)
