Free Open Day and Anzac Bell First Ring

This Sunday, 11th November 2018.

The Bell Tower Perth, Home of the Swan Bells will host an Open Day for visitors to discover the treasures in the Tower.

The Bell Tower 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.

DESTINATION ADDRESS: Barrack Square, Riverside Drive, Perth
DATE: Sunday 11 November 2018
