The Bell Tower, Perth
Categories: Monuments, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

We where there when the bells were chiming it was lovely to hear them and we enjoyed walking out on to glass balcony on top
Another worthy attraction,great view of the city from the tower,rang the bells,fun and informative, if you have a few hours to kill visit The Bell Tower.
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.
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 interesting story about the bells being donated from a church in England. I had an opportunity to ring one of those old bells. The views of Perth are fantastic
Great view, chimes are mesmerising. Cool architecture!!!
Fantastic and interesting experience. Really great and friendly staff, especially Michael who was very informative and should us around.
