The National Carillon is a gift from the British Government to the people of Australia to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the national capital, Canberra. It has 57 bells, ranging nearly 5 octaves from the 6,108kg bass bell in F# to the 8kg treble bell in D. Australia only has 3 carillons, the other two located at Bathurst and the University of Sydney and they were built as war memorials. It is a striking building with a Brutalist design.
Glebe Park is a remnant of a hundred acres (40 hectares) of land allocated to the Anglican Church in the early 1840s for use as a glebe, an area of land whose revenues contribute towards parish expenses.
City Hill is a park located in Canberra, Australia on one of the points of the Parliamentary Triangle, a feature of Walter Burley Griffin’s plan for the city. It is surrounded by London Circuit, which is a hexagonal road that encircles the hill.
The Australian War Memorial is Australia’s national memorial to the members of its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in wars involving the Commonwealth of Australia, and some conflicts involving personnel from the Australian colonies prior to Federation.
