Barry Doonan - Condamine Bell Maker and Blacksmith

St George

The iconic Australian Bell was first made by Condamine Blacksmith, Samuel William Jones, in 1868. Since then less than 10 blacksmiths have mastered the skill to produce the distinctive bell sound which can travel for miles. Barry Doonan & his Condamine Bells featured in Issue 60 of the R M Williams Outback Magasine.
In more recent years, Barry's elder son Michael Hawley continues the blacksmith tradition of making Condamine Bells.
