Captains Walk

Unique to Cootamundra, the Captains Walk features 42 bronze sculptures of Australian Test Cricket Captains, along with Unaarrimim the leading Aboriginal player in the first Australian cricket team to tour England in 1868.

Cootamundra has strong connections with two Australian test cricket captains, being the birthplace of Sir Donald Bradman and a former home of Bill Murdoch. Their careers led to a special interest in cricket among the people of Cootamundra, which still prevails, with Cootamundra boasting nine cricket ovals with three turf wickets.
