St Kilda

St Kilda Retail Australia – Made in Scotland

Based in Brisbane we have been distributing for Gaelic Themes and RG Hardie since 2002 and our business is based around Karen’s hand sewn kilt which we supply to pipe bands throughout Australia and New Zealand. We pride ourselves in offering quality Scottish made products for pipe bands at affordable prices, we try to attend as many pipe band contests as we can to offer a personalised service.


RG Hardie & Co – Makers of the world’s finest bagpipes

Since 1950 R.G. Hardie & Co. have been hand crafting the world’s finest bagpipes and pipers around the world have enjoyed the magnificent sound of our instruments. In 1972 Hardie’s also acquired the Peter Henderson brand and we have continued the tradition associated with this brand since 1868. We are proud of our commitment to traditional skills which we firmly believe produce the finest sounding and meticulously crafted bagpipes that will be treasured for years to come.
