Little Bay, The Wishing Bell

'The Wishing Bell' is a monument located along Brodie Avenue at the former Prince Henry Hospital site, in the eastern suburb of Little Bay. It stands opposite the clock tower and heritage listed hospital buildings which are now a museum. The bell on this monument was formerly on the clock tower of the Coast Hospital, established here in 1881 to deal with a growing epidemic of Smallpox in Sydney. To commemorate the centenary of the hospital in 1981, the bell was mounted on a pedestal made of stonework from the lodge which marked the original entrance to the hospital.
