Sharing Australian Red Hat Information



What brings you to this site? Perhaps you are a regular who logs in to read about the latest news or what events are planned for the future, or maybe you are curious about what Red hatting is all about and how you may be able to become involved with this fun-loving organisation suited to the mature women.


Being involved with a Red hat group is a great option to consider if you are looking to create some new connections.  You often hear of ladies admitting they debated whether to join the Red Hatters, but when they eventually do  agree that being part of a chapter is quite fulfilling because the members are quite diverse and are all extremely accepting. You can be yourself and relax. There are no expectations — it is what it is. Each group functions differently. Many meet up once or twice a month for a meal or coffee chat, while other chapters will enjoy themed parties, travel times together, or a great variety of frivolous pursuits.

Relationships play a key role in health and life expectancy and the benefit of social interaction improves the quality of one’s life especially as you advance into old age. We all have an intrinsic need to feel accepted by others, and connecting with like-minded people could turn out to be the best decision you can make for your mental and emotional health, especially as you age.

Everyone experiences that feeling of aloneness, or solitude sometimes. People may feel lonely for a number of reasons, including simple social awkwardness and intentional isolation. Some people may even feel lonely when they are surrounded by people because they lack meaningful connections with those people. And maintaining social connections as we get older can also be a challenge. Most times friendship takes time and effort in the endeavour of meeting new people of your choosing. Being part of a Red hat group companionships come easily.

Around the states there are over 360 chapters which equates to a lot of fun-loving women who regularly meet up to enjoy their social interactions. They have found that opportunity to enjoy the magic sparks that brightens up their otherwise routine days when they gather.

Some chapters in Australia have been functioning for over 15 years, that is a lot of positive change for a lot of fun-loving women!


So, as spring has now arrived, maybe it is time to give yourself permission to make some changes in your life. Despite all of the challenges, it is still clear that making friends and maintaining worthwhile relationships is important, especially as we age. Having good friends is not just “nice to have” – it is essential for our health and emotional well-being.  Red Hatters know all about that.
