ABOUT

THE CLOCK TOWER

The Nannup Clock Tower building was purpose-built to house the six-metre-high wooden pendulum clock created by master clockmaker Kevin Bird.

The dream of bringing this experience to the main street of Nannup has been a long time coming, but with the continued efforts of a determined few, has now been realised.

The aim of The Nannup Clock Tower and An Experience in Time is to introduce visitors to the delights of timber craftsmanship at it’s finest and to honour the forest and its majestic trees from which this magnificent clock was built.

KEVIN BIRD | CLOCKMAKER

Kevin was a retired aircraft engineer when he decided to build his own home out of wood. This started a lifelong love of working with timber, which together with his passion for clocks led to the ambitious dream of creating the world’s largest wooden pendulum clock.

Kevin is a natural storyteller and your tour guide on the Meet The Clockmaker tour.
