To help stop the spread of Corona Virus, we've made some temporary changes - As of 6 June 2020, the Bell Tower will now open Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10am - 4pm with last entry at 3.45pm. The ANZAC Bell will now ring on these days.
Located on Level 5 of the building the ANZAC Centenary Bell is rung Thursday - Sunday, at 12pm (1pm on ANZAC Day). The ANZAC Bell is the largest swinging bell in Australia and is a lasting memorial to Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women involved in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world.
The ANZAC Bell is one of the first bells to use 3D printing in the design. Gold was added to the copper and tin during the casting process, reflecting a tradition dating back hundreds of years.
The ANZAC Bell was installed in October 2018 and the first official ring was the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day, the 11th November 2018, shortly after 11am. It is the largest bell of its kind ever made in Australia and was cast in Perth, Western Australia. The ANZAC Bell is expected to last over 500 years and weighs 6,500 Kg.
For the full ANZAC Bell experience, we recommend booking the new small group premium tour at the Bell Tower, which offers visitors the opportunity to step behind the scenes and learn about the legend of the ANZAC and the 6,500kg Bell. Book your unique ANZAC Bell tour here.
