National Carillon


The Carillon, viewed from Commonwealth Park (with Nerang Pool in the foreground).

The 50-metre tall tower of the Carillon, with its 55 brass bells, stands on its own little island in Lake Burley Griffin - Aspen Island - connected to the shore by a footbridge. The Carillon has a recital program on Wednesday and Sunday lunchtimes, and it's not just classical or church music on the bells. Yesterday's program was:
