The "Machismo Clock" is dedicated to Councillor Noel W. Tyers for his services to the Barham community and support of irrigation development in the region. The clock is also in recognition of those who assisted in the design and assembly. 

A sculpture to commemorate the region's rural industries was unveiled at Riverside Park, Barham, last weekend. The Barham Clock sculpture is made from a variety of materials including copper, steel, cast iron and concrete. The sculpture was a community effort with much of the machinery donated by Barham resident Sue Morton, Wakool Shire donating the clock mechanism, designs by former Barham resident CarolinaTotterman and Barham High School students, and constructed by local inventor Hume Colville and high school students.
