Church Bells in the Valley
Yesterday evening there was a church service in the chapel at Thredbo. For about half an hour prior to the service the Church bells rang throughout the valley. The Church bells rang down the valley, echoing off the mountains. It is a beautiful sound and one that I do not hear often in Australia.
In Australia I think due to the distance from my local Church and also that most Churches do not ring the bells for long, if at all, it is rare to hear the Church bells ring. So it is nice to hear the Church bells ring in Thredbo.
With Thredbo being nested in the bottom of a valley it is also a unique sound to hear the way the Church bells bounce off the mountains. It is certainly one of the few places in Australia that this is possible.
The Church bells are definitely one of the aspects of Thredbo that I look forward to each trip….
