The Bell Tower

The Bell Tower is one of the best things to do in Perth. The must see tourist attractions located on Riverside Drive overlooks the picturesque Swan River. Filled with fascinating historic content and boasting a unique and distinctive design – resulting from major architectural competition – it has become an icon for Perth and Western Australia. The Bell Tower is one of the essential places to go in Perth. Commemorating Australia’s bicentenary in 1988, the twelve bells of St Martin in the Fields as well as five specially cast bells were presented to the University of Western Australia, the City of Perth and to the people of Western Australia. The London diocese of the Church of England and the parish of St Martin-in-the-Fields gave authority for the project to proceed. The additional bells cast in 1988 include two from the cities of London and Westminster, who each gifted one bell to the project, and a total of three bells bestowed by a consortium of British and Australian mining companies. Completing the ring of eighteen bells, a sixth new bell was commissioned by the Western Australian Government to mark the second millennium. Along with being one of the top things to see in Perth, The Bell Tower is also a unique party venue in Perth, offering venue hire for corporate functions, small weddings, parties and more.
