Marulan is the only town on the 150th meridian, which is where Australian Eastern Standard Time is actually based upon.
It is fitting then, that this is where the Sydney Clockmakers' Society will hold their charity fundraising weekend on October 12 and 13.
Entry into Marulan Hall is by way of gold coin donation, with the proceeds going to the Goulburn Palliative Care and Oncology Support Group.
Teas at the hall on the Sunday will be catered for by the Marulan branch of the CWA.

You can bring your clock to have it appraised by enthusiasts and experts, see on display an eclectic range of clocks the members have collected or restored, observe a variety of machines and tools being demonstrated, and see some very clever one-off creations made by the members too.
"Sydney Clockmakers have been for over 30 years meeting six times per year in member's workshops," one member of the society said
"You will see members' work which will include modern, traditional, experimental, one-off clocks made with metals, brass, wood, et cetera".
When you think about a clock from an engineering perspective, they're intricate and clever machines.
"Many of the clocks are to original designs showing extraordinary skill. The group has a shared interest in all aspects of horology, the study and science of clocks, watches and times, [plus] there are other items to the collection which are of great interest."
One of the models made by members will be a replica of a 1925 Caterpillar tractor, and there will also be steam-powered models.
The display of clocks and precision time pieces will include a working 1790 powered clock, marine chronometers and other precision timepieces that are related to the 150th meridian.
There will also be an historic walk of George Street, Marulan, at 11am Sunday, and make some time to visit Meridian Park while you're there.
