Don’t miss the famous Noah’s Ark Clock during your visit to the Eastgate Shopping Centre! This animal-themed automation clock was installed in 1983, when the centre was originally built. Every hour on the hour, a monkey figure climbs a tree and chimes the bell. The clock then plays a children’s song like Baa Baa Black Sheep or The Ugly Duckling, and more animal figures move to the music. And at 12 noon there is a special extended display, where extra songs are played. This is a must if you’re shopping with the wee ones.
The Eastgate Centre is easy to reach by car or public transport, as it’s located right in the heart of the city. There are two car parks and charges apply.
