Condamine Bell Tour
Witness the bell that carries sound across the Western Downs’ agricultural plains
Bullock bells were a necessity in the early pioneering days to enable a teamster to find his team when they had strayed from camp or the homestead. The greater the sound carry of the bell, the better. The most successful bell was first made in Condamine by Samuel William Jones, which became known as the “Condamine Bell”. The sound of this bell had impressive carrying power and claims that it had been heard 10 kilometres away were common in those days.
