Cootamundra is a prosperous rural service centre located at a major junction on the Sydney-Melbourne railway line in the southwest slopes area. It has become an evocative town with Cootamundra Wattle conjuring images of the Australian bush. The connection with Donald Bradman as his birthplace gives the town a link with Australia's most famous sportsman. The Don’s birthplace has been lovingly restored and refurbished, and the adjacent cottage is now home to a wonderfully rich display of Australian cricket memorabilia. The Captains’ Walk in Jubilee Park commemorates the significance of Cootamundra’s part in the history of test cricket and sports leadership, as the birthplace of the world’s all-time greatest cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman. The Walk features bust sculptures of Australia’s Test Cricket Captains together with the leading indigenous player in the first Australian cricket team to tour England in 1868. The Cootamundra Heritage Centre is located in the former 1927 built Cootamundra Railway Barracks and Rest House and houses a permanent object collection relating to Cootamundra along with 14 individual rooms dedicated to themes such as the history of the Cootamundra Aboriginal Girls Training Home.
