National Carillon

Landmarks and Buildings

The National Carillon is a striking 50 metre tall architectural landmark. It is also an impressive musical instrument with 55 bronze bells, each weighing between seven kilograms and six tonnes.

Aspen Island is the perfect place to enjoy one of the regular carillon recitals, have a picnic or just enjoy the magnificent views of Lake Burley Griffin.

To experience a virtual tour of the National Carillon, visit the National Capital Authority website.

The National Carillon was a gift of the British Government to the people of Australia in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Capital.
