THE BELL TOWER
Sunday 11th November: 11:30am - 3:30pm
Barrack Square, Riverside Drive, Perth, 6000
The Bell Tower Perth, Home of the Swan Bells welcomed a new bell in October. Named the ANZAC Bell, it weighs 6.5 tonnes and is the largest swinging bell in the Southern Hemisphere and is expected to last over 500 years.
2018 marks 100-years since the Armistice, now named Remembrance Day. The ANZAC bell celebrates, and commemorates the Centenary, and will serves as a lasting memorial to all Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women who were involved in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations around the world.
As part of the Remembrance Day Commemorative Service 2018, the newly installed ANZAC Bell will officially ring out for the first time following the 100 Buglers sounding of the Last Post, near 11am.
Join others in Barrack Square to be part of this historic moment when the ANZAC Bell rings for our servicemen and women, and then from 11.30am, take a free self-guided tour of the Bell Tower, Home of the Swan Bells.
