Twelve of the eighteen pieces are actually from the St. Martin in the Fields C in London, while the others are from the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. They were mostly donated for the bi-centenary celebrations of Australia.

Another attraction in the area is the series of ceramic tiles that surround the tower. They were from the different schools in Western Australia, with the students? names written on them.

Today, the Swan Bells tower is one of the top tourist spots in the city.
