The International Cricket Hall of Fame
Cricket at the historic Bradman Oval and Museum
District, national and international matches are played at the Bradman Oval, named after Australia's most famous cricketer Sir Donald Bradman. The ground hosts a fascinating museum devoted to Sir Donald's career and cricket's history. Surrounded by grassy slopes the oval is a magical venue to watch a match.
The history of the ground dates back to June 1823 when Governor Thomas Brisbane granted 2,400 acres to John Oxley, Surveyor General of the colony, explorer, author and businessman. Today the Bradman Oval has hosted one-day international matches to a capacity 5,000 crowd, cricket coaching camps, home games for the Highlands District Cricket Association and social matches. New South Wales versus Victoria and South Australia are scheduled for the new season (both ladies' and mens' games). If you love cricket then this venue and museum are wonderful muses.
The Bradman Museum, located beside the oval, has now expanded into the International Cricket Hall of Fame a fantastic haven for cricket lovers with interactive displays and memorabilia. It is also just a few moments from the shops in Bowral for those in the party less keen on the great game of cricket.
