Unique Perth – Perth in a Nutshell

Perched at the very edge of Western Australia, Perth is a modern prosperous city with a rich history, delightful climate and a host of things to see and do including a bevy of Australia’s best beaches. Who could ask for more of a holiday destination?

First you need to get your bearings. Downtown Perth stands on the banks of the Swan River which was given the name when a Dutch sea captain saw black swans floating here in 1697.

One of the landmarks in the river district is the 82.5-metre-high glass spire of the Swan Bell Tower on Barrack Street Jetty. You can climb up to an observation deck for some great views over the river and the city. But it’s the bells that are the most famous feature here. Twelve of the bells are from St Martin in the Fields, a church on London’s Trafalgar Square. They were rung centuries ago in 1771 to welcome James Cook back from his great voyage of discovery and now in Perth they are rung on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays between 12:30pm and 2pm.
