Option - Bradman’s Tour

Start Location: Cootamundra Heritage & Visitor Information Centre

Starting at the Heritage Centre, you will be overwhelmed with the information and history at the centre, with few artefacts on Sir Donald Bradman to get you started off. Just across the road is Albert Park, one of the two Cootamundra Cricket ovals. Turning down onto Adams Street, you follow this all the way until you reach Bradman’s Birthplace which will be on your right-hand side. The Volunteers at the centre will inform you on the great history and guide you through all the artefacts donated to Donald’s Birthplace Museum. Upon leaving the Museum, still on Adams street and just around the corner is Bradman’s oval- the second Cricket oval in town. From here you want to get to your final destination, the Captains walk which is located in Jubilee Park on the corner of Wallendoon and Onley Streets.

End Location: Captains Walk, Jubilee Park.


Option 2 - Historic Buildings

Start location: Old Cootamundra District Hospital

Cootamundra is Rich with Historic buildings, and starting at the Old Cootamundra Hospital you will not be disappointed. Located on the corners of Mackay and Thompson streets, the somewhat eerie building is a beautiful old two-story building with a grand entrance. From here its a short distance to Cooper street where you can find the old Police station and residence, the Cootamundra Post Office with town clock and the National Bank Of Australian Building. Turning onto Wallendoon street, you will find many old fashioned pubs, that are not only beautiful on the outside, including the Albion and the Globe Hotel. More historic Bank buildings, and turning onto Parker Street (Main Street of Cootamundra), it is like taking a step back in time- how many historic buildings can you spot?

End location: Main street of Cootamundra, Parker Street.
