Hatsdirect is the online and mail order service of The Hattery, Australia's leading hat shop. The Hattery is a family owned business established for well over 20 years. During this time it has developed into a significant destination in it's own right.


The town of Katoomba is the cultural centre between Australia's largest city of Sydney & the country regions of New South Wales' Central West.

Our store is a representation of this regional dynamic, servicing both the needs of country communities, the relaxed fashion trends of the coastal city & everything inbetween.

Our range caters to our extreme local weather. All year long you'll find a dedicated winter and summer section. We're just as likely to wear our winter Berets in Summer as we will our Straw Panama's in Winter, Katoomba is never dull!

In store we provide a tailored service. With decades of experience in the fitting of headwear, we'll make sure your choice of style is always met with long-lasting comfort.


At The Hattery we have been shipping hats to customers around the globe since the dawn of the internet! The Hattery extended family is ever growing. We have repeat customers from all over the world that share their stories with us. Stories that we read aloud to each other every morning, often with accompanying pictures that we truly cherish.

Our dedicated team of experts who have been tailoring to the needs of customers in our Katoomba store are the same exact team that will cater to yours online. Each hat sent online is quality assessed, measured, brushed and packed all by the same small team of experts. Any questions you have are always welcome through our Contact Us page.
