The Bell Tower - Home of the Swan Bells

One of the world’s largest musical instruments, The Bell Tower houses the Swan Bells in a distinctive 82.5 metre high tower located within Barrack Square.

The Bell Tower Perth

The observation deck at the top of the Bell Tower provides 360 degree views of the Swan River and Perth CBD. Entry provides unlimited access to all five public areas of the Tower. 

Hear the bells and see the Ringers in action - performing their ancient craft.

Visitors can also watch the state-of-the-art audiovisual screens situated through-out the Tower project images from 16 cameras focused on the bell room and the bells.

Chime one of the  St Martin-in-the Field bells and receive a certificate stating they have chimed an historic bell (free of charge).

On level six - the Observation Deck, visitors can enjoy breathtaking 360 degree views encompassing the Swan River, Kings Park, City of Perth and the Darling Range.

This deck also boasts a 26 bell Carillon that plays several well known tunes & national anthems for a mere gold coin. It is the first of its kind in the world.

The latest addition is Video Postcards. This is a fantastic FREE service for visitors and allows them to film themselves at the Tower, send the link to their friends and say hello.


Just a 'bell ring' away from public transport and walking distance to the city centre, the Bell Tower is perfect for intimate corporate events.
