Every Australian who ever dreamt of wearing the baggy green cap knows that the greatest batsman who ever lived, Donald George Bradman, was born and nurtured as a New South Welshman, but has spent most of his long life in his city of choice, Adelaide. And no visit to Adelaide is complete without dropping into the State Library’s Bradman Collection. The Bradman Collection is made up almost entirely of The Don’s personal memorabilia and features rare film footage of the great man in action, photographs, the Royal Worcester Vase cast in his honour and bats he used in some of his most notable innings. And before returning to your Tranmere digs why not complete a perfect day of reacquainting yourself with the life and times of Sir Donald with a wine-sipping cruise on Torrens Lake in an original Venetian gondola. Tranmere is a suburb in the largely residential, inner-north-eastern municipality of Campbelltown, which is just 15 minutes from the Adelaide CBD.
