Cricket willow too good to miss

If cricket is your forte then there’s one place not to be missed when in central Victoria. I refer to Cricket Willow, the home of cricket bats in Australia. Located at Shepherd’s Flat near Daylesford, Trish and Ian Tinetti extend a welcome. Be sure you do the cricket tour,- and do a run on the splendid oval and stop over for a cuppa and refreshments. For details ring (03) 5476 4277.
