The clavier for the Carillon has arrived in Bathurst, marking the next phase of upgrades that commenced in 2018 with the installation of new higher octave bells.
The clavier has come all the way from Taylors Foundry in England, the same company that manufactured the memorial's original bells in 1928.
Mayor Bobby Bourke said the upgrade would not have been possible without the support of the NSW Government contributing $300,000.
"I would like to thank the Paul Toole and premier Gladys Berejiklian for supporting this important project," he said
Paul Toole MP said the Carillon is the centrepiece of Bathurst and the project will see the Carillon completed in the way it was originally intended.
"The Carillon has stood in the centre of Bathurst since 1933 and was built to honour the men and women of the region, that served and died during World War One," he said.
"Today it also represents the sacrifices of those in all wars and peacekeeping missions."
Representative from the Carillon Trust, Richard Steele, said the clavier is a large wooden instrument that is commonly played with clenched fists.
"It will be scheduled to be installed by experts from Taylor's Bell Foundry when travel restrictions are lifted," he said.
"I would like to acknowledge the many individuals and organisations that have helped make this project possible."
