Red Hatters Gathering

13 August 2017 - 22 August 2017

Red Hatters are 50s-something women who meet and travel in the name of fun. They wear red hats and purple attire and the more frivolous the better. Their motto is clear, dip your toe back in to a wild fun world, stop counting your years, and start living life - the party is only just beginning!

Ladies looking for an hilarious time can enjoy the world of Norfolk Island and participate in a week of planned activities including A Night of Music & Food Aboard The Jolly Roger with Matty Zarb, lunch at Paradise Hotel followed by Red Hatter Exclusive Half Day Island Tour with a difference, Masquerade Luncheon at Castaway Hotel including glass of bubbles, special Red Hatter afternoon tea & shopping spree at A Walk in the Wild including glass of bubbles and Farewell Dinner including entertainment at Paradise Hotel

Women younger than 50 are also welcome, but they must possess a fun-loving streak, don pink hats with lavender or lilac attire. Look-at-me accessories like a red feather boa are encouraged.

The leader of the local Red Hat chapter is known as the Queen, and members refer to each other as Red Hatters. Events vary from chapter to chapter, but most Red Hatters favour attending parties, fun outings and get-togethers for any reason, or just for no reason at all!

The Norfolk Island Travel Centre is offering special travel packages for Red Hatters wanting to take part in this fabulous week! Your hosts will be the Norfolk Island Red Hatter Chapter with Queen ‘Her Royal Highness Queenalee Rosalie, and her ‘Bounty Babes’!

"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the Red Hatters' gathering 2014 on Norfolk and the joy of meeting so many ladies from Australia, New Zealand and the Island itself.  Here in Australia,  I meet regularly with a good number of red hat ladies as well as with friends and other people. I tell them what a tremendous experience my trip to Norfolk Island was - such a great place for a holiday, the beauty and cleanliness, its great history and its friendly people - so much and so thoroughly enjoyable. I speak of the joyful gathering of red hatters, the good accommodation, great food, car hire etc. together with information of your well organised travel agency." - M. S. Maroochydore
