NOTES: The tower, designed by Hames Sharley and engineered by Arup, houses 18 historic bells of London's St Martin-in-the-Fields, cast in 1724. They were gifted to the people of Western Australia by the UK to celebrate the Bicentennial. The building is so-called both because of its siting on the Swan River and because the symbol of Western Australia is the black swan.
