The Bee Gees hail from Redcliffe and this is a slick & informative tribute to the local legends. It is a long mall length memorial and has a bronze sculpture of the trio plus lots of information on their life & career. One of the monuments has the names of several Bee Gees songs listed and I was interested to find out they actually wrote a lot of songs other artists made famous such as ‘Grease’ and ‘Islands in the Stream’.

It’s in a top location across the road from the Redcliffe Jetty (where the Bee Gees used to fish & look for pennies) so I took the opportunity to walk out along the jetty after learning about the Gibb brothers. The day I visited it was Sunday markets, the Main Street was closed off & there were people everywhere. Next to Bee Gees Way is Pita Kebab & Grill where I sat & ate a felafel kebab & 100m or so down the road I found the Jetty Arcade Hall of Fame featuring famous faces born in or linked to Redcliffe such as Mel Gibson, Geoff Huegill, William McInnes, Andy Gibb & the Bee Gees (of course).

In honour and celebration of the Gibb brothers musical career who launched their careers in Redcliffe. It's a 70 meter walk with statues, photos, album covers covering 5 decades of the Bee Gees. Every night from 7pm till 9.30pm see a light show set to Bee Gees greatest hits. The annual Bee Gees Way dinner in September sells out quickly. I remember seeing the boys perform at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney in the early sixties and have been a fan ever since.

As a long time fan of The Bee Gees, I wanted to visit this place in Radcliffe, QLD Australia for a long time. Coming from Europe, we said so to our family in Brisbane. That was a nice day trip.

It is really well done. There are audio tapes, various displays, wall paintings/art, and best of all a real life size statue of the band members.

This is Holy Ground for all Bee Gees fans.

Having watched the band perform during the Ekka's half time speedway track grading in the 1960's, their rise to prominence is an amazing story for the boys from the "peninsula". Bee Gees Way is a fitting tribute to the world famous trio and captures their history in a unique way, demanding fans who visit Redcliffe to attend. Historical, factual and emotional can describe the MBRC's efforts to create a memorial for the ages.

This outstanding display is in a lane off Redcliffe Avenue, diagonally opposite the Information Centre at the jetty. It's not all that long, ending at Sutton Street 100 metres away, but the visuals, and the background music featuring their greatest hits, are outstanding. The northern wall takes you back to their parents' marriage in wartime England, then deals with each member and their prodigious rise to fame first in Australia then in America. Barry Gibbs' voice also comes in at times, and the direct quotes accompany relevant photos or captions. The southern wall features huge murals of each of the Gibbs at different stages of their lives and careers in showbiz. To cap it all off, there are life-sized bronzes of them in the early and later stages of their phenomenal success. And showing the care that has gone in to this outstanding attraction, the ceiling above affords protection from the elements while letting in shaded light.

We did the light show the other evening and loved sitting in the lane watching the old footage and hearing stories from the boys themselves. The oldies loved the bandstand shows as well as the displays. A great laneway on the water.

We arrived just as the rain came pelting down, so it was a quick dash from the car park to Bee Gees Way. This is a really wonderful tribute to 'local boys', the Gibb Brothers, who began their amazing and lengthy career, singing at the local speedway. And it was a local identity named Bill Gates (no, not that one) who set them on the path to immortality. The tribute is not at all tacky and very well done featuring a trip down the Bee Gee's memory lane while providing an insight into these remarkable entertainers and their connection to Redcliffe. Naturally, their music plays continually and you find yourself unconsciously humming along. At the Bay end of the walk is a wonderful life-size statue of the boys performing. Well worth a few minutes of your time. Next visit we will try and catch the evening light show.

It is great to see that there has been a fitting tribute set up to honour the brothers Gibb. While not born in Redcliffe the brothers did spend a lot of their formative days on the peninsula and played their early gigs there.

We spent about 39 minutes there reading the wall and looking at photos and watching the video footage. It was all great ( the supposed light show is a bit lame though).

Worth a visit. There is no charge. It is in a laneway in the middle of Redcliffe town.

Visiting this celebration of one of Australia's TOP SINGING GROUPS retrieved a dull day with little to fill in time prior to the A League match up the road.
The BEE GEES were of my era, & Spicks & Specks was a favourite song for so many years.
The info & presentation of the Bee Gees Way was superb & completed a comprehensive discography of all there numerous hits.
Being a fan for decades I still managed to stumble on details that I never knew.
They morphed several times in their career to take on the ever changing styles of music tastes, but when you see their list of hits you realise how talented & prodigious they ended up being, even on the international stage.
Spent about an hour reading all the panels ... & reliving my youth if I'm honest.

What an interesting lane way, full of history, even if you are not a music buff like me.

Some great information about the Bee Gees and complete with statues to pose with.

A great walk through back from a restaurant for dinner as it is all lit up.
