Some landmark experiences included:

- CWOB players visited Japan on internships in June and December 2015 and through arrangements with CWOB the Prahran Cricket Club in Melbourne hosted a young Japanese player for six weeks.

- CWOB toured Fiji in September 2015 for a series of matches and coaching activities with the Fiji national women’s team who had not had an opportunity for any competitive cricket for three years prior to CWOB’s visit.The Australian Government –Pacific Sports partnership program provided opportunities for a number of local 15-18 year old female players to participate in matches against CWOB.

- The CWOB tour with its focus on inspiring and increasing participation rates of young women was a rare time that female cricket took centre stage over the development of the male game.

- During the tour CWOB visited the Veiuto Primary School and the Arya Samaj Primary school, the later a mulit ethnic and multi religious school that caters to children with and without disabilities. The CWOB coaches and players organised and participated in activities with the students,teachers and development officers from Cricket Fiji in doing so demonstrating that cricket is both a universally accepting sport and a sport that cuts through countless divides and inequalities.
