Perth The main historical symbol of Perth is the Swan Bells (Bell Tower Perth). It serves as a starting point for most sightseeing tours. It is a high bell tower constructed of metal and glass, at the base of which a copper construction of impressive size is installed. At present, the Swan includes 18 bells, more than half of which were brought from England several centuries ago. Part of the bell tower has been converted into a museum displaying a collection of antique watches and bells.

One of the most unusual historical sites in Perth is the Old Fire Station. Founded in 1900, it became the first purpose-built fire station in the state. The author of the project was the famous architect Michael Cavanagh. The beautiful mansion with a bright tiled roof has been preserved in its original form to the present day. The main distinctive feature of the two-story mansion is its unusual facade. It is decorated with an abundance of diverse elements: elegant turrets and arches, as well as small galleries with columns. The historic building is still being used for its intended purpose, while its part has been converted into Fire Safety Education Centre Museum. Among its exhibits are several vintage fire trucks, as well as a collection of documents and photographs.
Lots of interesting entertainment are available for travelers who love exploring natural attractions. They should definitely visit Perth's suburban areas and see the legendary Pinnacles (The Pinnacles) - one of the most mysterious wonders of the local nature. That is how the locals nicknamed bizarre limestone formations that can be seen in the desert area, which is part of Nambung National Park. Indeed, these natural formations look a bit like small turrets, from which their current name derives. Scientists have argued about details of the formation of the "turrets" for decades. According to one of the most popular theories, they are surviving fragments of prehistoric trees, which over millions of years have been covered with sand dust. All kinds of fascinating excursions and tours are regularly held in the Nambung. During walks, visitors will have a great opportunity to get acquainted with the diversity of representatives of the local flora and fauna.

Iconic cultural sights of Australia

Canberra is famous for its memorials, the most interesting of which is the Australian War Memorial. A strict monumental structure of light brick is crowned with an impressive bronze dome. On the walls of the memory hall and on the slabs behind the arches, are carved the names of the places where the Australian soldiers fell in battles, and the names of the dead. In other parts of the memorial are dioramas of battles, samples of military equipment, and battle paintings. Nearby you can see a Japanese submarine flooded off the coast of Australia. The memorial to Captain James Cook was built in honor of the bicentenary of the first voyage of the famous pioneer.
