STEP INSIDE

WHAT YOU’LL SEE

Inside The Nannup Clock Tower, you’ll see a six-metre high timber pendulum clock, the largest of its type in the world.

The clock face is visible from the outside of the building, but the beautiful inner workings are only visible from the upstairs interactive display area, where visitors can get close enough to smell the fragrant wood and hear the click, click, hum of the gears, but not close enough to touch the clock and risk disturbing it’s perfectly balanced rhythm.

If you’re lucky, you may get to see the self-winding mechanism turn over, which happens just twice in every 24-hour cycle.

Visitors have the option of being accompanied on their journey through time by our self-guide audio track, one of our knowledgeable tour guides or the clockmaker himself Kevin Bird.

Our clockmaker’s passion for his craft spills over in the stories he shares about his journey through time, and the creation of our beautiful clock.
