Following breakfast, our journey takes us through the Southern Highlands to Bowral, for a visit to the International Cricket Hall of Fame.

To honour this vision, the museum has been expanded to not only show the importance of The Don's contribution to cricket and Australian history, but also cricket's role throughout the world.
