Redcliffe Wall of Fame in the Jetty Arcade

Updated: 2 days ago

Residents pride in their town or city is influenced by many factors. Whether it be its historic past or even from those citizens past and present, who have achieved fame in their chosen profession or activity. Redcliffe has been blessed with many such citizens from all walks of life. Some dating back to Redcliffe’s inception in 1824, others are modern day achievers and many in between.

In 2013, at the initiation of local Redcliffe identity Richard Lancaster, a group of business people approached the Moreton Bay Regional Council seeking permission to create a `Walk of Icons in the Redcliffe CBD. To add substance to the request, support was sought and obtained from the Redcliffe Chamber of Commerce.

The `Walk of Icons` would be located on the footpaths of Redcliffe Parade and would consist of a series of metal plaques set into the pavements, at intervals. Each plaque would have the name of a Redcliffe icon inscribed on it and would also be numbered. These numbers would be cross referenced to a `Redcliffe Icons` booklet, which would detail the numbered name and history of all of the icons activities. The booklet would be free and available from Council Information Centres. Thus the `Redcliffe Icons` would be instrumental in providing both residents and tourists with a visual history of Redcliffe and be complementary to Bee Gees Way.

As it was considered that the project should be self- funded, local businesses or individuals would be encouraged to sponsor the icons. A committee under the auspices of the Redcliffe Chamber of Commerce, of which Richard Lancaster was Patron, was established. A series of meetings were held between September and December 2013 and progress towards the establishment of the Walk was well under way.

Finally, a complete plan, which included design plans for the icon plaques and total costings and time frame was presented to Council. However the Council rejected the project due to possible traffic disruption and uncertainty as to pedestrian safety relating to the pavement plaques.

Due to the generosity of the landlord of the CBD’S Jetty Arcade, Dennis Austen, `The Walk of Icons` became `The Wall of Fame`, now located in the Jetty Arcade.

We will be posting up on our blog, the entire collection in the order they appear from the Suttons St entrance of the arcade.
