Previous Tower Open Days
Sunday, 13 December 2020, (midday to 4pm). The Friends of the Auburn Tower Inc: auburntowerfriends.org.au held a successful Open Day. Due to COVID restrictions, numbers were limited to 120, and nearly every one of these places was taken up by members of the public keen to see what had been happening behind the scaffolding.
24 November 2019: Between 2pm and 6pm we welcomed over two dozen visitors – all of whom were climbing the Tower for the first time. This coincided with a concert of the combined Victoria Welsh Choir and Geelong Welsh Ladies Choir and, throughout the afternoon, sublime music floated around the Church and foyer and up through the stairwell.
7 April 2019 (2-4pm) when 33 people (23 adults and 10 children) went up the Tower
2 December 2018 (midday-4pm), 34 people went up the Tower
There are also panoramic photos taken from the Tower Viewing Deck on display at the 3rd level of the tower.
