With the successful launch of the Variety Entertainers of the Century on 29 April 2006, Docklands residents and visitors can now enjoy the lasting tribute to Australia’s 100 top entertainers and learn more about Australia’s fascinating artistic tradition.
Variety Entertainers of the Century at Waterfront City is destined to become a tourist attraction in its own right, and incorporates three elements:
Walk of Stars: Similar to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 100 plaques will meander through Waterfront City commemorating the names and achievements of individual artists. The majority of the plaques are installed in the Piazza.
Bronze Statues: Five of Australia’s top entertainers will be immortalised in bronze by renowned sculptor Peter Corlett. These entertainers include Dame Nellie Melba, Graham Kennedy, Dame Edna Everage, John Farnham and Kylie Minogue. The statues of Graham Kennedy and John Farnham are now on permanent display at Waterfront City.
Mosaic Mural: A stunning 11m mosaic mural, created by renowned mosaic artist David Jack and based on an original artwork by Jamie Cooper, has captured each of the 100 entertainers in their hey day in a unique tribute. The mural is now mounted in Waterfront City’s Piazza.
The 100 entertainers were selected by a panel of entertainment industry stalwarts including John Michael Howson, Val Jellay, Frank Van Straten, Mick McCall-Jones, Peter Ford, Jim Murphy and Patti Newton. The decision process was a difficult one for judges, but made much easier following a nomination process whereby members of the public were invited to vote for their favourite Australian entertainers.
