Twelve of the 18 bells in this tower came from London's St.-Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square as a Bicentenary gift to the people of Western Australia in 1988. Originally cast in the 13th century and recast in the 16th and 18th centuries, they were rung at the homecoming of James Cook after his voyage of discovery in 1771, after the Battle of El Alamein in 1942 and at the coronation of every British monach since George II in 1727.

While discovering Perth, we caught the Cat bus from here to visit other attractions. It self is not that spectacular because of the revampment of the area. But worth while as very nice attractions surrounding it.

this feature has been there for many years, it is so much better now that Elizabeth Quay has opened up, the bells ring sometimes and it is a lovely structure and the sails look very clever nestled on the Swan River

The Bell Tower was a reasonably priced activity whilst in the heart of Perth city. We didn't do the full tour, just wondered around but was great. Awesome view from the top floor as well!

A great location to unwind after a busy day shopping and window shopping. The evening cool breeze helps us relax. Whats more we found Fish n Chip at PAZ on the jetty.

How amazing is this! Walk along the Swan River and come up to this breathtaking place. Stop at the Square food, refreshments and just to sit and soak in the view. It is all amazing

Is a good place to visit eventhough there are not many things to do. The government just renew it and is a cool place to take pics of the swan river and of course the tower. In the surroundings you can find some bars and many other activities.

This amazing structure is situated on the banks of the Swan River and has amazing 360 degrees views from the sixth floor where you are able to walk around the outside of the tower. The bells themselves are famous having been brought over from Britain and are used on a weekly basis by the dedicated bell ringers. If you manage... More

Very nice view of Perth from the top of the Bell Tower- also if you get there about 2:30 pm, you can watch the ringing of the bells, or for extra $ ring them yourself. Nice way to get out of the sun and heat for a bit.

Located in front of Elizabeth Quay, the bell is very beautiful at night where colourful lights are shining.
