A statue commemorates cricketer Sir Donald Bradman. Costing $115,000, the statue was unveiled just outside the cricket ground on February 25th 2002, one year after the cricket legend’s death. The statue was unveiled by Governor Marjorie Jackson-Nelson and the Lord Mayor, Mr. Alfred Huang, in front of over 100 guests.

Bradman rose to acclaim in Australia and overseas in the first half of the 20th century during times of hardship, depression and even war. Although he retired from playing cricket in 1948, and passed away in 2001, he still remains one of the most talked about sports persons of the past 100 years.
