The Bell Tower, Perth

3.6
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Perth
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. The Bell Tower is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Perth Edition.

  • Had never been here bought a heart lock to commerate an anniversary and the personal tour of the bells was well worth it. Just walking up the stairs and not taking the tour you are missing out on why ...  more »

  • Very unusual its a shame that it will be hemmed in by huge high rise buildings it is an iconic building and had a beautiful spot to show off its beautiful structure
  • Great place and really looks amazing. They have done a great job. Love the little gifts available.
  • Next to Elizabeth Quay and the associated attractions. Beautiful sounds and great design. I just stayed outside and thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • Nice place to visit. Not to expensive (around 10$). You can see the bell ringers in action and do up the 6th floor to enjoy the view. A big thank you to the nice gentleman working there that explained everything about the place to me.
  • You may think that the tower looks cool, with it's iron sails in the quay, but the Bells may not be. But it's surpassingly a cool place. The Bell Tower is worth spending at least an hour at to look at these impressive old looking bells. My recommendation is going on their website and finding when they have ringers ringing the bells, then heading in at around that time. If you go for the experience, you'll can chime some of the bells.

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
