Overview

Visit the Bell Tower, one of the largest musical instruments in the world, located in the heart of Perth in vibrant Barrack Square. Also known as the Swan Bells, the bell tower contains twelve bells made in the 14th century for St Martin-in-the-Fields church in London's Trafalgar Square. Learn how the bells came to Australia, discover the art of bell ringing, and soak in panoramic views of the city, Swan River and Elizabeth Quay from the open-air Observation Deck.

What to Expect

Make your own way to Barrack Square to enter the Bell Tower at the time of your choice.

As you tour the building, learn about the history of the bells from 14th-century London to modern-day Australia. Experience an interactive demonstration on the art of chiming a bell with chiming demonstrations taking place Monday through Saturday every half an hour between 10:30am to 2:30pm. You even have the option to record a free video postcard to send to your family and friends. You'll also receive a bell chiming certificate as a souvenir.

Please Note: Every Monday and Thursday 12pm-1pm, the bell ringers are ringing the bells in concert; no chiming demonstrations take place during these times. If you are planning a visit to hear the ancient bells or practice bell chiming, please contact the supplier in advance to reconfirm the ringing times. Days and times are subject to change without notice.

The Bell Tower; One of many Perth Attractions

A great experience in Perth, Western Australia. I was one of the very first people who saw the new Anzac bell that has been installed. I had the experience of ringing the bells and the view from the tower is lovely. Well worth the visit.

Well worth a visit and tour

A really interesting place and well worth a visit. The history of the bells and connection to the UK was very interesting. We also got to ring the bells which was fun, especially the heavier ones. Also great views from the top of the tower.

Worth paying for escorted tour

You can do the tour on your own but if you pay for the escorted tour you get to learn more history and you get to have a go at ringing the bells. So good and very enjoyable.

We got to ring the bells!!

Amazing building and a very interesting experience. Howard was informative and pitched his presentation just right - short enough to keep the interest of a 5 & 7 year old and then let us try some bell ringing (or should that be chiming?). Hands on...More
