Deep within the hollow at the rear of Edgecliff railway station, nestles this cricket oval, Trumper Park. It is part of an old creek bed draining Bellevue Hill to the east down into Rushcutter Bay which is part of Sydney Harbour.
Victor Trumper was a whirlwind of a batsmen who played for the local Paddington team and, having a modicum of ability caught the eye of the Australian selectors. He played at that level from 1899 - 1914, dying in 1915 aged 37 from Bright's disease, a disease of the kidneys.
This is a sad and run down memorial hidden away from prying eyes.
