Hall of Fame – Legendary Australian Performers


Over the decades Australia has produced some wonderful ‘home-grown’ talent, many of them moving on to the international stage. It is interesting to note that in the 21st century some of the world’s most successful actors are Australian. In the 1980s I commenced releasing some of the pioneer artists on compact disc as the Yesterday’s Australia Series.

Wherever possible I have noted any references whereby I have first–hand knowledge of the artist. I would invite readers to contribute their own suggestions as to other artists who should enter this Hall of Fame (200-300 words and an image would be ideal)
