Cootamundra

Discover the country charm and picturesque environment of Cootamundra, the birthplace of cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman in the beautiful Riverina region. Nature lovers will enjoy birdwatching trails and the bright yellow blooms of countless Cootamundra wattle in July and August.

Open seven days, Bradman’s Birthplace Museum is full of cricket memorabilia. In Jubilee Park is the Captains Walk, featuring 42 bronze sculptures of Australian Test cricket captains and Unaarimim, a famous Aboriginal cricketer who led the first Australian cricket team tour of England in 1868.

For local handmade gifts, browse Cootamundra Art and Craft Centre and stop in at Khaya, a cafe, gift shop and gallery. 

A great base for exploring the Riverina, Cootamundra’s accommodation options include holiday cottages, motels, a converted church, a farmstay and a pub. You can even stay at Manorbier Vineyard and enjoy views of the vineyard and watch kangaroos graze in the paddocks early in the morning.
