  • Fabulous tour by Howard that was fun for the whole family from 5yo to grandparent. It was great getting to see the Anzac bell ring and to play a tune in Carillion.

  • This is a great place to head to, it is a glass build surrounded by a small moat. At night the colours of the lighting is so pretty.

  • Its located in Elizabeth Quay in Barrack Square, across the road from the Supreme Court Gardens. The shape of the building is quite unmistakable. There are two type of entry, normal entry to look around or a tour which includes a session to ring some bells yourself. I went with the bell ringing tour just to see what it was like. The tours are every 30 minutes so not much waiting if you did want to go. The tour involved learning about the history of the clocktower, bells and actually ringing these old bells yourself. Bell ringing is harder than it looks, we just went for a couple of minutes but some of these bell ringers go for hours. The tour also included entry into the bell tower, heading to the top observation deck, to look at the belfry and read about the history of the bells. It was an interesting attraction. The views were nice. It wasn't overly tall so you didn't see past the buildings but it was a nice view nonetheless. There was also an automated bell ringer on the top level which rings for a gold coin.
  • If you come to Perth don't forget to visit this one place
  • The iconic attraction in Perth, the Bell Tower have 18 bells hanging in and built 82.5-metre-high. The tower is also known as Swan Bell Tower. A great place to visit with kids!
  • A great inner city beauty and wonder. Draws attention both day and night. Safe to walk around late in the evening
  • A very interesting attraction with some amazing views of the surrounding area and quite a rich history. The staff there are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It is well worth the visit when in Perth. Next want to come back and do the tour where you get to ring the bells!
