AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Very few people know about what could be, and many believe should be, Australia's most significant sporting tale: an Aboriginal cricket team's 1868 tour of Britain. Even lesser known is the story of Harrow, the tiny town In Victoria's Wimmera that immortalises the team's star cricketer - Unaarrimin (aka Johnny Mullagh). It is the enduring story of the first sports team to represent Australia Internationally. The team was predominantly Gundjitmara, Jardwadjall and Wutyubaluk men, with all bar one from the western Wimmera district of Victoria. The Koori Mail's Jillian Mundy went to Harrow to find out more.'
