The Bell Tower has been the talk of the town ever since its opening in 2000 as Western Australia’s Millennium project.
Characterised by its strong architectural authority, grand glass entry foyer, and newly re-landscaped surrounds, the stunning six-storey complex is filled with fascinating historic content dating back to the 14th century, plus three unique spaces available for events.
Over the years, the venue has held more than 650 functions, including high-profile, corporate and private events, from launches, cocktail parties and wedding ceremonies, to receptions, sit-down dinners, buffets and birthdays.
Interstate and international companies and delegations also frequent the site to exploit its spectacular views of the city skyline, Swan River and Elizabeth Quay. If this wasn’t memorable enough, guests can even try their hand at playing the same bells rung for Captain Cook’s homecoming in 1771, with a 30- or 60-minute bellringing session, or a 20-minute group demonstration (group maximum of 30).
The venue is open for breakfast or sundowner/evening functions outside the public hours of 10am to 5pm (4pm in winter), with furniture available for hire.
