Crowds of people flocked to the Redcliffe Peninsular on the day to see Barry and hear him speak. Barry's mother was with him and it was an emotional time. VIP guests had special seating which was fenced off to the public; also present on the day where Mayor Alan Sutherland and Bill Gates, the former 4BH disc jockey who recognised their talent, recorded their earlier songs, and played an important role in the start of their career.
Read and hear Bill Gates recording these early memories of the Gibb's brothers here.
The foreshore pathway was widened during recent renovations of Redcliffe Parade on the Peninsular, benefiting the many cafes and restaurants located along this road to spill out and set up. It is a beautiful suburb by the beach and is worth planning for a full day out to walk the way and spend some time to play.
There is plenty of parking behind the laneway at the other side of the road parallel to Redcliffe Parade.
