Akubra talk goes live at ABC’s Big Ideas

Earlier this year, Dr Lisa Murray spoke about Akubra, its history and its place in Australia’s cultural landscape.

ABC’s Big Ideas filmed the talk, and it is now available to view or download.

Today, Akubra continues to be a family-run business, and we were fortunate enough to have several of the Keir family present on the day of the talk. They – and in particular matriarch and former Director, Wendy Keir – were able to give further detail on the history and process of making Akubra hats during question time.
