ilightbox The National Carillon, situated on Aspen Island in central Canberra, Australia.

I've been offline as travelling. Got up for sunrise this morning and visited this lovely place.

The carillon was a gift from the British government to the people of Australia to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Capital, Canberra. Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the National Carillon on 26 April 1970. The 50 metre tall National Carillon tower was designed by Western Australian architects Cameron, Chisholm Nicol.

The National Carillon has 55 bells, each bell weighs between seven kilograms and six tonnes. The bells span four and a half octaves chromatically. The carillon is in regular use, chiming every quarter hour and playing a short tune on the hour.
The carillon features wonderful views over Lake Burley Griffin and central Canberra.
