About the stops
The Captain’s Walk
Unique to Cootamundra, the Captains Walk features 42 bronze sculptures of Australian Test Cricket Captains, along with Unaarrimim the leading Aboriginal player in the first Australian cricket team to tour England in 1868.
Cootamundra has strong connections with two Australian test cricket captains, being the birthplace of Sir Donald Bradman and a former home of Bill Murdoch. Their careers led to a special interest in cricket among the people of Cootamundra, which still prevails, with Cootamundra boasting nine cricket ovals with three turf wickets.
The Sir George, Jugiong
Located in the riverside village of Jugiong, The Sir George offers a unique eat, drink, bake experience in the Australian bush. Built in 1852, the historic venue has been restored to create a warm and relaxed space where old meets new … with a restaurant, boutique bar and artisan bakery.
Snacks and starters are priced from $4, with Mains starting from $18.
If we get 10 or more people interested, we can look at booking a Set Menu (Indicate in the “Other Comments” section of the Registration Form if you would be interested in having the set menu)
On the banks of the Murrumbidgee River just off the Hume Highway, the picturesque village of Jugiong is an ideal entry point and introduction to the Hilltops Region. With charming local tourism businesses along the main street, Jugiong a great stopping place to refresh for your journey.
Highlights include the Jugiong Wine Cellar (includes artworks, sculptures, alpaca wool garments and local gifts); Curators Collective (furniture, homewares & fashion); a wood turning business and the Sgt. Edmund Parry Memorial.
