    I'm going to Australia this summer and would love to buy an Akubra Campdraft while there.
    Anyone have any recommendations where to get one in either Brisbane or Melbourne?
    Thanks in advance.

    I think City Hatters (right in the centre of Melbourne) might be able to help. Being open crown, I suspect that the Campdraft wouldn't sell in the volume of their pre-creased models, so it may pay to call ahead and make sure they have some in.

    Oh...and by "summer" you mean winter of course;)

    In Brisbane, pop in and see my friend Keith at Distinctive Accessories:
    Shop 14, 1st Floor
    Anzac Square Arcade
    Cnr Adelaide & Edward Streets
    Brisbane
    Tel: (07) 3221 0104

    It's also right in the middle of the city. I'd call ahead so he can order one in for you.

    "LUCKY."

    I've wanted to go to Australia nearly my entire life. When I finally make it down under, you can rest assured I'm coming home with an Akubra bought in the flesh. ;)

    Haven't a word of advice to add, just chiming in to say you lucky dog you.

    Sounds like a great experience, enjoy Australia, but coming back with a Campdraft sure is classy! I'd love to own one, one of these days. I'm torn between another Federation in moonstone grey, or that, a Campdraft in silverbelly for that Open Road style. On another note, if I ever do go to Australia, I will almost certainly be wearing whatever Akubra hats I happen to own! I might, like you, purchase one from one of their shops too.

    Yeah

    Why did they have to put Australia so far away?

    I've wanted to go since I was a kid ,,,, even before I found out about campdrafts, squatters, and so fourth

    It would be worth taking an extra bag just to bring back hats, man!;)

    The irony is that it's almost always cheaper to buy your hats online...at least when there's no international postage involved.:eusa_doh:

    Hope you enjoy your stay. Shame to miss out on the Harbour City though...

    Maybe next time
    [huh]
