Perth Sights and Landmarks Guide, Australia

Perth may be one of the world’s isolated capitals, but then, it has its contribution of interesting attractions that tourists can visit. Perth offers interesting sights and places to see from museums to animal parks and gardens.

The Swan Bells

Located in the Barrack Square in Perth, the Swan Bell Tower is not to be missed. It remains to be one of Perth’s most-visited attractions since it opened in December 2000. But historically, the twelve of the 18 bells originally came from St.-Martin-in-the-Fields, a church in Trafalgar Square, London. They were cast during the 13th century and were rung when James Cook arrived from his voyage in 1771, after the El Alamein Battle (1942) and at every coronation of a British monarch. The bells were given as a Bicentenary gift to Perth in 1988.

AQWA- Aquarium of Western Australia

For a view of Western Australia’s fantastic water and marine treasures, tourists can visit the Aquarium of Western Australia. It features the country’s largest aquarium and underwater tunnel. Tourists can go snorkeling or scuba diving with the assistance of trained divers and explore the reefs and great wonders of the Indian Ocean and come across to meet sharks and interesting marine creatures.

Kings Park and Botanic Garden

For a more laid back and relaxing outdoor leisure, Kings Park is a great place to experience nature’s green bounty. The park has picnic areas, walkways, and bike areas surrounded by lush gardens and Australian flora. It is within the central city area and near Perth’s main street, the St. Georges Terrace so visitors can also get a view of the Swan River and the city.


Aside from the gardens, guests can visit the memorials and monuments like the War Memorial, Honour Avenues, Fraser Avenue, the Bali Memorial and the Edith Cowan Clock. Kings Park is also home to the Royal King’s Park Tennis Club.
