Overview

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.

We enjoyed this trip it was not expensive and if you time it well you can hear the bells . We walked out on platform to view the city .

It's located near Perth CBD. Well it's not tall like other towers around the world, for example Sydney tower. Fewer people around there at night. It's not deserved to pay a ticket, just have a look.

The Bell Tower is a modern, well designed facility. Walk up the stairs and see the exhibits and read the history as you ascend. Exhibits are well done although we were a bit disappointed that the large bells did not ring at 12:00. The top...More

Make it twice as fun by using the stairs... and take your time to capture the different sights and panorama as you climb up or go down...

Thank you for the 5 stars! This is often the advice we pass onto our customers, take the lift up to level 6 and the stairs down to explore all the levels. Please come back and visit us again soon!
