First glance suggests the leafy surrounds of Manuka Oval could not be further from the site of the old Weilmoringle pastoral station through which Ashleigh Gardner's roots run.
But it is there, a lofted on-drive away from Parliament House, that she will get a chance to honour her heritage like never before.
Australia will wear an Aboriginal-inspired uniform when they face England in a Twenty20 international at Manuka Oval on February 1.
The strip is designed by Kirrae Whurrong woman Aunty Fiona Clarke and Butchulla womanCourtney Hagen and will provide Cricket Australia with a tool for reconciliation.
That is why, as Gardner joins international superstars like Ellyse Perry and Meg Lanning in pulling on a uniform bearing links between cricket and country, and tributes to those that have gone before them, they will be doing more than pulling on an Australian shirt.
"I'm very proud of my Aboriginal heritage and to be able to represent my country and culture in this way is a significant moment for me and the women's team," Gardner said.
"As part of the touring party that celebrated the 150th anniversary of the 1868 Aboriginal team to tour England, I realise how powerful valuing culture through symbols like uniforms can be about telling stories and raising awareness.

"My hope is that this match and these uniforms play a part in starting conversations, promoting awareness and encouraging us all to learn more."
The walkabout wickets logo represents Lord's, meeting places and the game's continual forward motion. The stumps, the prospect of Aboriginal cricketers beating England at their own game.
The yellow-orange-ochre transition symbolises the connection to country and being grounded. The stars, a nod to the 1868 Aboriginal team that toured England who provide guidance and are now living in the stars.
The belt wrapped around the shirt demonstrates the years of the 1868 team's journey and the story-telling of their descendants and families. Such stories signify strength and resilience.
The match will be the centrepiece in a blockbuster weekend boasting three Twenty20 internationals featuring Australia, England and India.
The uniform comes as Cricket Australia prepares to launch its second reconciliation action plan designed to find common ground with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The plan is slated to include up to 100 commitments from Cricket Australia towards reconciliation.
It may even inspire the next Ashleigh Gardner.
