The Roey Rocks


‘The Roebuck Bay Hotel’ ย is an acrylic painting on stretched canvas.

‘The Roebuck Bay Hotel’ has always been an iconic place to meet in Broome through the ages, from pearlers to backpackers. This painting focuses on the 1970โ€™s and 80โ€™s and the unique breed of mullet headed people, too hot to handle cars and the crazy fashions, that invaded Broome when the Roey rocks.

Available as a ready to hang print on stretched canvas.
Available in 2 sizes.



The Roey Rocks is a painting that should evoke a feeling that you are eighteen again and back in Broome in the 70โ€™s and 80โ€™s.

Broome in that era was bubbling with free spirits, whose music was too loud and hot pants were too short.

My husband visited Broome in the late 70โ€™s and spent most of his spare time and money at the Roey Hotel. He was the inspiration for the painting and if you look closely he is inside playing pool.

He remembers the rawness and excitement of hot Saturday nights, hot cars, hot chicks and where mullets and alcohol flowed freely. So did the rivalry between Holden and Ford.

The painting should rev up your v8 memories and blast your ACDC minds!

And if you are too young for that era, jump right in anyway … my hubby is always looking for the next person to beat at pool.
