One of my favourite television shows (when I had a TV) was the ABC’s Backroads. A few years ago the show featured the little Victorian town of Harrow. It looked a quaint little town with character and characters. For that reason alone I put it on my bucket list.
The town is quaint. It is also very quiet. A sleepy hollow on the Saturday that I visited the town. It is a picturesque town nestled in a valley between two hills. It was a beautiful summers day when I visited but I imagine it would be a very cold place at night and freezing in winter.
The first cricket team to tour England, in 1868, was made up of all aborigines from the local area. This was 14 years before the first Ashes Tour. Johnny Mullagh was the star player. A handy batsman and bowler he scored 1698 runs (23.65) over 45 matches and took 245 wickets (10.00).
