These January school holidays, children can enter the celebrated Perth Bell Tower for free.
Normally costing up to $7 each, every day until Sunday, 29th January, up to four children can enter for free with every full paying adult ($9).
Built in 2001 for the famous St Martin-in-the-Fields bells, the Bell Tower has a fascinating array of things to do and see for children. The twelve bells originally came from a church in London but they became too heavy for the ancient foundations so they were rescued and brought especially to Perth, where the custom-designed Perth Bell tower was built for them.
General entry provides access to all levels of the Bell Tower including the observation deck on Level 6 from which you can see across Perth city all the way to the Darling Range. You will also find a Carillon consisting of 26 bells playing popular songs and anthems for a gold coin.
Kids can also film themselves at the tower using a Video Postcard and send it to anywhere in the world.
There are chiming demonstrations every half hour Monday to Saturday between 10.30am and 2.30pm and full bell-ringing events every Monday and Thursday and Sunday between 12pm and 1pm.
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.
Free entry for kids finishes on Sunday, 29th January.
