    Take a moment to understand the time and the sound- great place to go in peace with your soul.

    Nice lookout on a fine day. This is not a must see place, you may skip if you do not have enough time in Perth.

    Check for performance times (noon on certain days). Performances are volunteer based, so keep that in mind. Have a sit outside and listen to the Swan Bells.

    Unfortunately too much renovation around the bell tower, spoil the whole sceneries and mood.

    $12 entry to walk up some stairs is a bit ridiculous. As a local, I'd visit far more often if that barrier was brought down.

    Much more of a bell museum than the name suggests. Definitely more interesting than I was expecting.

    Couldn't get up there as it was a public holiday! However it looks just as impressive from the outside!

    Get there early on Wednesdays to participate in the bell ringing demonstration. Also, the Locks of Love are a sweet souvenir.

    Little known fact: the toilets on the third floor are powered by the bell ropes so only flush while the bells are ringing.
