Cricket fans will love the historic photographs and ‘Kit Bag’ of The Don’s cricket bats, balls and uniform. His significance beyond the field is also evident in the miscellaneous mementos – from newspaper headlines to a Bradman Toby jug!

Even the non-cricket inclined (myself included) will be intrigued by gems like the exquisite Royal Worcester vase and a Buddhist temple replica presented to Bradman in Ceylon. These perhaps unexpected treasures remind us of cricket’s cross-cultural history, highlighting how this Australian icon was beloved beyond our shores.
