The Blumbergville Clock, sitting in the heart of Boonah on High Street, is a unique piece of installation art created by renowned local artist Christopher Trotter and clockmaker David Bland. Its name is a historical reference to an early name for what is now Boonah township.
Council commissioned the clock in 2012 and it is intended to honour the spirit of resilience in our community, in particular our farming community, following the natural disasters of 2011 and 2013.
The project was funded by a Community Development and Recovery Package through the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), an initiative of the State and Federal Governments, together with funds from the Boonah and District Cultural Foundation and Scenic Rim Regional Council.
Additional funding from the State funded the installation of custom lighting and an interpretive plaque.
