From Thursday evening, March 3, the Bathurst Carillon will be illuminated yellow and blue to show solidarity for Ukraine.
Bathurst mayor Robert Taylor said the Carillon is only illuminated on rare occasions and the tragic circumstances currently unfolding in Ukraine are more than enough reason to light up the centre of ANZAC Parade.
The illumination will remain for one week as a display of support for the country.
