RECORD ATTEMPT OF MOST PEOPLE WEARING AKUBRA HATS

The Stroud Brick & Rolling Pin competition added another touch of Australiana to this year’s program, with a tilt at the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people wearing Akubra style hats.

They came from as far as Foster for a photo in their trusty old hats, which will be sent to officials for verification.

The home of the Akubra, Kempsey holds the record at one thousand, nine hundred and twelve.
