Perth City Things To Do - City Sights

The Perth Mint

At The Perth Mint you can view Australia's largest collection of gold nuggets, handle $225 000 worth of gold and watch as vats of molten gold are poured to form a gleaming six kilogram gold bar. You also have the opportunity to mint and then engrave your own personal medallion or pick up a souvenir whether it comes in the form of a coin, bullion, nugget or jewellery.

The Mint was established in 1899 with visitors flocking through its doors for the last 90 years. It is one of the state's most historic buildings and one of the world's oldest Mints still operating from its original premises. The Perth Mint is a great destination no matter what your age!

The Bell Tower

The Swan Bell TowerWhere Perth meets the Swan River in lively Barrack Square is a towering glass spire called The Bell Tower. It is one of the world's largest musical instruments and houses the bells from Saint Martin in the Fields Church, the parish church of Buckingham Palace which date back to the 14th century. It is also the only place in the world where one can view bell ringing in action. Combine both of these factors with 360 degree views of Perth and the Swan River and it is no wonder that both Australian and International tourists flock here.

Western Australia Museum
