Parramatta, Gollan Memorial Clock Tower

This sandstone clock tower is located in Prince Alfred Park, in the western suburb of Parramatta. The park honours Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, who was the second son of Queen Victoria. The Gollan Memorial Clock Tower was erected in 1954 to commemorate the services to the district of the Honourable G C Gollan, Member of the Legislative Assembly and former cabinet minister.

    1. No, our weather is a lot different to Melbourne. They are known for having four seasons in one day.
