Welcome to the Bell Tower

Home of the Swan Bells, Perth

The Bell Tower located on Riverside Drive overlooking the picturesque Swan River is one of Perth’s most unique and must see tourist attractions. Filled with fascinating historic content and boasting a unique and distinctive design – resulting from a major architectural competition – it has become an icon for Perth and Western Australia.

This historic ring of bells was given to the people of Western Australia as part of the national Bicentennial celebrations in 1988. Among its many attributes the Bell Tower includes the twelve bells of St Martin-in-the-Fields, which are recorded as being in existence from before the 14th century and recast in the 16th century by Queen Elizabeth I.
