Ada’s Frock Salon

Ada’s Frock Salon has an array of elegant clothing and clothing related items that are all fine examples of the personal belongings the pioneers brought with them. Wives came to Herberton with dresses and accessories that suited the English climate but were thoroughly inappropriate for the Queensland climate. This display includes a selection favoured by well-dressed women of the day, including a black brocade jacket and skirt from 1894.
