Mackay agency first in country to secure Ashes tickets

HARVEY World Travel Mackay and Mt Pleasant is the first retail travel agency in Australia to secure tickets to the fifth Investec Ashes Test match, at The Oval in London next year.

Harvey World Travel Director John Cooney said the firm had been working closely with Cricket Australia to secure the packages and was thrilled to be able to provide this unique experience to Mackay residents.

"The Ashes is one of the world's most famous sporting events and for us to be able to provide the opportunity for Mackay residents to attend, is amazing," Cooney said.

"The Ashes is one of those bucket-list experiences, with so much of our Australian history intertwined with the game, it certainly would be a spectacular event to witness live."

The Oval was the first venue in the United Kingdom and second in the world (after the Melbourne Cricket Ground) to host Test Cricket.
