The Bell Tower, Perth
(3.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Come see one of the largest sets of ringing bells in the world at The Bell Tower. The tower is a modern architectural delight, with its copper and glass bell tower and 18 bells. Climb the spiral staircase to ring the bells yourself. Take a rest at the observation deck and enjoy the views of the Swan River and urban surroundings. If you prefer to stay at ground level, walk on the path inlaid with ceramic tiles around the tower. Opened in 2000 to commemorate the new millennium, The Bell Tower has become a city icon.

  • Took the bell tower experience. Michael gave a good introduction and demonstration. We had a chance to chime the bells. Not easy but nice experience. Not too suitable for small children. My 4yo seems ...  more »
  • Tower stands on the banks of the Swan River as the name suggests, are interred big Bell. You can go to the top of the Tower if you pay the entrance fee. You can hear the sound of the Bell is Bell quite frequently, so when you go. You can't ring a Bell in my fingers for the people watching through the glass.

  • Must see city icon when in Perth. You don't need to do the tour, just pay entry to go up into the tower. On top is a viewing platform with great views of the harbour and the skyline. There are some very old bells here, and are impressive to see. the building itself from the ground is impressive and makes for good composition. There are also Love Locks where you can show your undying love for that someone special. For those playing Pokemon Go, there are 3 Pokestops here and usually always have lures on, so there are some Pokemon to catch when you leave.
  • This is a great sightseeing area, make sure you bring yourself to the top with a camera. I love coming here, I have rang one of the bells before as well - a great experience.
  • Used to only landmark in a barren wasteland that was the foreshore, but now it seems at home amongst the Elizabeth Quay. Worth a visit to this while seeing the quay. It's one of the only truly unique things about Perth. Oh and it's a bell tower, don't get too excited.
  • Me and my mum went up the tower, and i must say i really enjoyed it. i had an awesome view of the swan river, and i even got to put and coin into the thing and the bells play Amazing Grace. Halfway up the tower, i got a little scared and my legs felt like jelly. I always thought that the bells were on top of the tower, but they are actually inside the tower. When i walked into level 4, I saw some black glass in the middle so i could see what was in it. (Keep in mind that i am so scared of only huge bells) so when i looked, i saw the biggest bell ever! and the second i looked at it, a grandfather clocked started playing a jingle and it scared the living life out of me! I am so going up there again someday. Thank you! -Kate
  • Very nice place, very artistic, nice views and for the pokemon go people out there it's a very popular place for that at the bell tower
