Gibb's family, including brothers Robin and Maurice, emigrated to Queensland from England in 1958 and became stars Down Under before conquering the rest of the world. The Bee Gees remain one of the country's best-selling acts.
Australian actress Abbie Cornish and tennis legend Roy Emerson were also feted at the event.
