Redcliffe in Australia is where it all started

The three brothers signed their first music contract in 1958 sitting around the kitchen table of their family home in Redcliffe.  Therefore, it is rather apt that today there is a 70-meter monument connecting Redcliffe Parade and Sutton Street. Subsequently, this alley was renamed to Bee Gees Way, featuring from album covers to photos to the artwork of all four of the brothers.

The monument in the Bee Gee Way illustrates six stages of their musical career:

  • We found paradise – life in Redcliffe
  • Heading to London in search of fame
  • Americanisation of the Bee Gees
  • Catching the Fever
  • Mythology
  • Life Changers
