The Bell Tower, Perth

3.7
#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.

  • The Bell Tower attracts your attention when you are roaming around the sprawling Elizabeth Quei area because of it's unique architectural design.Looks sweet and cute, though the commercial high-rise buildings being constructed in the vicinity may dwarf and affect it's charm. Entry ticket is a bit pricey, though, ringing of huge bells, locking a love lock and fantastic view from viewing area may encourage one to buy the ticket for a well deserved entry.As a tourist you do not visit this place so enter and enjoy the experience.Looks beautiful both during day time or in the evenings when it is lit with colourful lights.
  • The Bell Tower is a great tourist destination - would recommend checking it out while you're in Perth. Every hour they ring the bells, which is quite something. Also, while you're there make sure to check out Elizabeth Quay and the riverside view. If you're feeling adventurous you can also catch a ferry across to South Perth and explore there as well.
  • Buildings under construction around the tower except for the water front. So there is really not much of a view if you pay to go up the tower to the 6th floor. But there is a little history to the bells if you're interested.
  • See the historic bells from St Martin's in the Fields in a unique Bell Tower. A good view from the top level too. There are bell demonstrations throughout the day and you get the chance to pull on a bell rope. At certain times the bell ringers practice and demos aren't available then. Best check with the tower before your proposed visit.
  • Beautiful place! There is a lot of heritage and history regarding Bells and Australia 2000 year old celebration. If you pay more, you get to try you hands at ringing the bells which is an extremely unforgettable experience. Also certificate is included. The staff are extremely friendly and will be a pleasure to make conversation with.
