    Public

    Take a journey through Rock 'n' roll in Australia from our first home-grown stars of the 1950s, Johnny O’Keefe and Col Joye, to the rock stars of today.

    Beginning with the quintessential ‘Rock around the clock’ to the worldwide success of Australian bands such as the Easybeats, AC/DC and Jet, we trace the evolution of rock and roll in Australia and the creation of a distinctive Australian scene.
