Bell Tower over looking the Swan River – a gift from the UK.

Twelve of the bells are from St Martin’s – in- the- Fields London, and a further five bells, which were casted in 1988 to celebrate the bicentenary of Australia – two being gifted by the City of London and the city of Westminster (one each), and the other three by British and Australian mining companies. A sixth bell was added by the West Australian Government to mark the second Millennium, which makes the ringing of the eighteen bells in Perth’s bell tower the largest secular bell tower in the world.

Traveled a great deal - about 70 countries - first foreign country I suppose was Wales, which was only 80 miles away from where I was born. Visited each Continent, except Antarctica, and I doubt that it is on my bucket list - too cold. I love Asian food, Australian wine & British beer & trying to entertain by writing.
