To catch a glimpse of what that spectacular sight might have been, a visit to Sir Donald George Bradman’s childhood home at Bowral, a 120-km drive from Sydney, is a must-do for every cricket-lover.

The Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall Of Fame, initiated by the Bradman Foundation and inaugurated by then Australia Prime Minister John Howard on August 27, 1996, is the absolute epitome of meticulously preserved Bradman ‘artifacts’.

The magnificent cricketing memorabilia notwithstanding, The Bradman Walk, a journey that must be undertaken by foot covering interesting aspects of the batting legend’s life, like his childhood homes, his school and, most importantly, the ground where it all began, are enchanting to say the least.
