1954 Australian Tour: Wollongong and Bulli

Royal Hatson February 11, 1954, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Wollongong, south of Sydney. Mid afternoon, they travelled north to Bulli, where they boarded a train to return to Sydney. For this “day away” the queen wore a blue silk shantung tailored coat with a matching calot in braided blue straw. The hat had a cuffed brim (that looked to be scattered with tiny blue flowers?) around the front overlaid in a delicate veil and was trimmed with a black bow at the back.
