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.

The Bell Tower is situated just right at the dock beside Elizabeth Quay. The tower itself certainly has a rather interesting architecture, and it seems they could hold some exhibitions within the tower, though I didn't venture in. There are a few restaurants and bars...More

Good to visit. But over rated to pay for internal tour. Good to hear when bells are chiming and the bell ropes are pulled by so called volunteers. I wonder where all the money goes that they collect from tourists?

The surrounding view that makes this place busy but the nearby construction site that will make your photos not perfect. Near to Elizabeth Quay and the riverbank of Perth.

This has been a building much discussed since it was built. Aside from budget constraints, no ideas if size was constrained for engineering or sound engineering. Otherwise it could have been an amzing function centre for weddings and conference meeting venue if it was constructed...More

Nothing much about the Bell Tower, but the surroundings are great -- nice beach scenery, cafes and bars around. We spent almost one day hanging around here. Feel good!
