Glenquarry Farm: In The Steps of Don Bradman

If so motivated and financially capable, one can rent out Glenquarry Farm at 117 Sheok Rd, Crafers West, off Adelaide, for only (!@#!) …. and bask in the imaginary footsteps of the one and only Don Bradman.


This is your chance to live in the house purchased by the great Sir Donald Bradman in the late 1950’s as a secret hideaway. This was where he could spend time with his family away from the eyes of the media.

After being owned by the Bradman family for 52 years, the property was sold earlier this year and the property is now available for rent, for 6 months, before the new owners move into the property themselves.

Imagine sitting under the porch, watching your family play cricket on the lawn, just as the great Sir Don did.

    Sir Don was the greatest Batsman ever. I recall listening to the commentary in his last series touring England along with my dad. Rex

    While The Don gained fame & fortune, there was a darker side to Bradman which the media prefers to keep under the covers.
    Ian Chappel, whose grandfather Victor Richardson played with Bradman at the SA level, would narrate a number of stories. Bradman played for Bradman. And he was a vindictive revengeful man should you cross his path. Keith Miller, one of the finest allrounders Australia has produced, is a case in point.
