Kookaburra was established in 1890, the brainchild of saddle and harness maker Alfred Grace Thompson. After immigrating to Australia in search of a warmer climate, Thompson found that his trade was being eaten away by the advent of the motor industry and consequently decided to use his experience in leather to expand into the provision of sporting goods. Ably assisted by his sons Bill and Alf, Thompson's traditional production methods were soon in demand, particularly within the burgeoning cricket ball market. From these beginnings, the Kookaburra brand has been propelled forward by four generations of the Thompson family, all the while remaining true to the need for product development to remain at the core of the business.
