Is there anything better than watching ODI cricket live from the stands, cheering on our boys as they take on the Aussies in their own backyard? There's been some epic battles for the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy over the years and expect the 2022 series to be no exception.
With the recent three game ODI series announced for Cairns this September, we can't wait to get over to sunny Queensland to support the boys. Join us on either our 3 Night (2 Game) Package, or be there for the whole tour on our 6 Night (3 Game) Package.
