Just OK

The view was fantastic but there is a sense of, now what?

Was very windy when I went so the observation deck was closed as is the cafe. You go up the lift, you walk a lap of the tower and come back down again.

It needs better signage or information at what you are seeing.

Great view and thats it.

If you love getting up high and looking at a vista, then this is the place in Canberra. Buy your ticket knowing that it is really all about the view only. In the time of Covid it isn't really an experience. Gift shop and cafe on the observation deck is closed and so its purely about the view.

Fantastic view of Canberra
May 2021 • Couples
We drove up here as soon as we got to Canberra. Wonderful way to see an almost aerial view of Caberra, 360 degree views from the 2 outdoor viewing platforms (beware the thousands of flying ants on the lower platform), don't forget to take a coat ad it's very breezy & cool up there despite being warm on the ground. There is an indoor viewing level but the windows are very dirty. Worth the $7.50 per person to go up.

Good views but very poor facility

Good views over Canberra with signs showing the key highlights. We really didn’t think that Telstra should be charging for entry and then not spending the money on maintaining the facility.

This thing is huge and located on top of Black Mountain in the Center of Canberra, there are very few places you can stand in Canberra without being able to see this monolith staring at you in the distance.

We walked to the top from a trail connected to the botanic gardens but there are a few tracks that work their way to the top if you are game enough... you can also drive up if you are feeling lazy 😋

In the bottom of the tower is a little museum and a cafe at the entrance. You need to pay to take the elevator to the top though in which you will find an 360 degree observation Center as well as outdoor viewing platform. Also a restaurant inside (was closed at this time though).

There is no better way to view the Canberra region then from inside the tower so it is well worth it

Best all round views of Canberra
Mar. 2021
Stunning 360 degree view over Canberra. Very windy on the top observation decks so hold on tight to your cameras & phones!
We found the windows on the lower deck confusing as they had the names of what to look for but we could not find Parliament House no matter how hard we looked!
Due to Covid I guess, there was not enough seating on the Cafe level but the young guy who was there on his own did a sterling job of serving everyone.

View from the tower was spectacular, could see just about the whole of Canberra, not for the fait hearted if your scared of heights...

We had to wait for three days for the weather to clear but when it did it was worth the wait for the fantastic views over Canberra

Fantastic views of Canberra. Unfortunately the coffee shop was very busy as this would be a great place to sit and enjoy the scenery.
