They are world famous and have the most recognised vocals in the music industry, and they grew up right here by the bay. Playing locally as kids at The Redcliffe Showgrounds and local pubs.
This is the home they grew up in, a skip, hop and a jump from the Moreton Bay Boat Club. My partner had told me about the house with the sign at the front that he used to ride past on his bike, and now I have seen it for myself. You can too. Number 12, Fiftth Avenue, Scarborough.
"I have changed, the child inside me has not. I'm still here on Redcliffe Beach. I'm still fishing for the tiger shark on a pier long swept away by time and tide. I can still see the pie cart, the Saturday night dance, and the speedway, and first love. I remember visibly my childhood days here and I will dwell on my Redcliffe for as long as I live."
