Welcome to the home of Bendigo's Golden Gadabouts

                  Registered Chapter # 81917




Jennifer, Queen -of-the-Castle

founded the Golden Gadabouts in January 2011



The Red Hat Society is the largest international social organization for women, dedicated to making the world a better place for our members by actively promoting and supporting fun, friendship, freedom, fulfillment and fitness for each individual, as well as demonstrating the value and contributions of women to society at large. Together, Red Hat Society (RHS) members are reshaping the way women are viewed in today's culture. RHS is a place where women are royalty every day, a place where women open their hearts to share, support and care for one another and a place where fun reigns supreme.


What do Red Hat ladies do?

We gather in groups called chapters. Our leaders claim the royal title of Queen. We choose clever names for ourselves, don regalia of red hats and purple attire for those ladies 50 and above or pink hats and lavender attire for those ladies under 50 and do exactly whatever it is that we want to do!


We go to movies, the theatre, window-shopping, museums, high teas, exhibits, tours or pottery making.

We can attend RHS conventions and events hosted by other chapters. We do lunch, have teas or gather in our homes. We dress up or down. We do any activity we find interesting.
