Discover Australia’s cricketing past:
Did you know that Australia’s first international touring sports team and our first cricket team to tour England, was a team of Aborigines who lived and worked in south-west Victoria, in the 1860s?
This fascinating and significant chapter in Australia’s history, is the foundation for the Harrow Discovery Centre and Johnny Mullagh Interpretive Centre – named after the star all-rounder of that pioneering cricket team.
Join our First XI, from the infancy of the team, to their history-making presence on the field at the hallowed ground of cricket – Lords.
Sixty-two years after that historical tour, a young Don Bradman would join the 1930 Australian Test team in England. He would go on to captain the 1948 post war team, which would become forever known as ‘The Invincibles’, in his final Ashes Tour.
The Harrow Discovery Centre is proud to house part of the largest private collection of match-used Bradman memorabilia, in existence, including three of Bradman’s own cricket bats.
It’s time to get out the GPS and head to Harrow, Victoria.
