The Swan Bell Tower is a rather interesting structure. Perhaps it is the nouveux spire made of glass, or the fact that it meshes in very well with its surrounding artistic feel that is the newer development of Barrack Square.
I initially thought the Swan Tower was so named due to it being swan-like, but it was really because of the river way that it faces: the Swan River. But I still maintained that the swans must have place some role in the designer's inspiration.
Barrack Square is a great place to grab a snack/coffee at one of the water front cafes. This is also the embarkation point for jetties/boat tours for a leisurely ride around the Swan River.
