Photographer's Note

Fans of the Bee Gees should not miss a visit to Bee Gees Way, a commemorative 70m walkway that honours Redcliffe's most famous young residents who went on to be one of the top selling bands of all time.

The walkway, which was opened in 2 stages in 2013 and 2015 by Barry Gibb, was largely curated by him and is like a multi-media mini outdoor museum.

A gallery of more than 60 photos, 13 album covers and snippets of info about their lives, set out in chronological order, covers one wall along with an enshrined copy of the first album contract they signed with managers Bill Goode and Bill Gates in 1959.

Along the other wall is a 70m mural of the artwork of Barry, Robin, Maurice and younger brother Andy Gibb while a 5.3m video screen shows interviews with Barry Gibb, never before seen home videos and footage of the Bee Gees performances.

As well as life size (bare foot) statues of the Gibb brothers as children in Redcliffe there's also statues of the adult Bee Gees from the 'One Night Only' album era.

Seating features the lyrics of Bee Gees songs and by night the whole laneway comes to life with light shows set to music* every half hour from 7pm till 9.30pm.

The rest of the story you already know ^_^
