For families, there is plenty to do in and around the Bell Towers including climbing to the observation deck on Level 6 for views across Perth city all the way to the Darling Range. On this upper deck, there is also a Carillon consisting of 26 bells that plays well-known songs and anthems (for a gold coin), the first of its kind in the world.
There are also plenty of historical and state-of-the-art displays throughout the tower and the opportunity to film yourself at the tower using a Video Postcard and send it to anywhere in the world.
You won't have to wait long to hear the famous bells, as chiming demonstrations take place every half hour Monday to Saturday between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
For a full bell-ringing event, be at the tower every Monday and Thursday and Sunday between 12noon and 1pm when the volunteer bell-ringers perform their magic. For those who wish to participate in a special interactive bell-chiming demonstration, you can choose to go on the Bell Tower Experience tour (adults $18, children $9).
The twelve bells originally came from a church in Trafalgar Square, London but after they were discovered to be too heavy for the ancient foundations of the old church, they were rescued and brought especially to Perth where the custom-designed Perth Bell tower was built for them.
The Perth Bell Tower is open daily from 10am with last entry during the school holidays at 3.45pm. It is located in Barrack Square in Perth city, easily accessible using trains and the free blue Cat bus.
General adult entry is $9 with concessions for student/senior/companion/Centrelink card holders. You cannot buy the tickets online - they are available at the door only.
Free entry for kids finishes on Sunday 29th January 2017.
