Bathurst War Memorial Carillon is situated in the centre of beautiful King’s Parade in the heart of Bathurst. Officially opened on 11 November 1933 to honour the men from Bathurst and district who served in the Great War, the memorial now recognises those who have served in all conflicts and peace-keeping operations. Bathurst War Memorial Carillon is one of three carillons in eastern Australia, the others being Sydney University War Memorial Carillon and the National Carillon in Canberra. Its close proximity to the tower of All Saints Cathedral with its peal of eight bells is unique in the world.
The Singing Tower is a memorial with a voice: a voice to call to the skies that we remember; we remember not only in the morning and at the going down of the sun. Whenever the bells ring we shall remember them.
