A larger-than-life statue of Aussie entertainment icon Ian`Molly’ Meldrum has been unveiled at Richmond’s Wangaratta Street Park. 

It stands alongside a new Wall of Music mural by artist 23rd Key as part of Yarra Council’s revamp of the park. A new grassed area, additional seating and raised garden beds are among the other upgrades to this much-loved local park.

After the unveiling on September 25, Meldrum was inducted into The Age Music Victoria Awards Hall of Fame to recognise his many contributions to music and culture. "It’s a great privilege to induct Molly into our Hall where his name will be listed with so many of the artists he has championed,” said Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan. The statue was the idea of Meldrum’s long-time friend Ralph Carr, and was created by sculptor Louis Laumen.
