Ringing of bells to mark start of
National Day of Mourning service
BELLS will ring across Victoria on Sunday as the nation stops to remember the victims of the state’s deadly bushfires, with the toll now at 209.
A ringing of the Federation Bells at Birrarung Marr at 11am will signal the start of the National Day of Mourning service at Rod Laver Arena.
Premier John Brumby today encouraged churches, town halls and other facilities to ring their bells at the same time.
