Historic commemorative plaques project
NSW honours its heroes
In 2004 the top pop group the Bee Gees were honoured with the dedication of a plaque on the property in Maroubra where they lived together in the 1960s. Last year a prototype design for a new commemorative plaques program was launched with the first plaque dedicated to the memory of football legend Johnny Warren.
"The Bee Gees and Johnny Warren are major figures in Australian popular culture that fully deserve this level of recognition," the Premier said in launching the program.
