The Head Named Hat

The Head Named Hat

We Australians tend give locations funny names and the head named “Hat” comes into that category.

As travel was allowed in NSW, we camped at Hat Head with family members for five days, during the July 2020 School Holidays.


The area was apparently given this name because someone thought one of the headlands looked like a hat, but for me none of them fit that description.

The Historic town of Gladstone is only 18 kms from Hat Head and well worth a visit.

And South West Rocks is only 28 kms from Hat Head.


We were there in mid-winter, so it was not surprising we needed a fire during the rather cool evenings.

Another short, but enjoyable holiday concluded. Thanks Belinda & Kane, thanks Tom & Jamie. Let’s do it again sometime.
