Celebrities move out of NewQuay

Celebrities move out of NewQuay Image

Don’t go looking for Kylie, Edna or Graham at NewQuay Piazza. You won’t find them.

The bronze statues were removed last month in preparation for the construction of MAB Corporation’s Banksia apartment tower.

The statues of Kylie Minogue, Dame Edna Everage, John Farnham, Dame Nellie Melba and Graham Kennedy were installed in the piazza in 2006, alongside 100 bronze plaques recognising and commemorating Australian celebrities, and known as the Walk of Stars.

The 11-metre long Variety Entertainers of the Century mosaic was also removed from NewQuay last month. The mural features 100 Australian celebrities from the past century, picturing them in their hey-day.
The works are currently in storage and it’s unclear at this point where they will end up.

“The Walk of Stars bronze sculptures and star plaques along with the Variety Entertainers of the Century mosaic tribute have been removed from NewQuay Central,” Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson said.

“The artworks were removed to enable construction of MAB Corporation’s Banksia.”
