My mate and I took his three kids aged eleven, seven and five to Telstra Tower on a day out in Canberra. The entry fee of $17 for five of us was very reasonable. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and although quite overcast, we were still treated with spectacular views of the whole city and its surrounds from the... More

from this tower you can see whole canberra, even the canberra airport. There is a post office at the top of the tower. You have to pay $7 per head to visit this place. In the top, there is an open deck to see the place. Also there is a cafe too. In the ground floor, there is a museum... More

Telstra Tower offers excellent views of the city and its surrounds. There's not too much else up there though, and you need to make sure it's a clear day for the best views.

We attended a wedding held in one of the corporate rooms on the weekend. The view was incredible and the room was transformed into an amazing reception. The view became more impressive as night fell

It is just so special to view the whole city and surrounds from this amazing tower. It is a must see if in Canberra. Easy to find.

Certainly worth a visit, the 360 views of Canberra are fabulous. The decor and cafe are a little tired but it doesn't lesson the enjoyment of the visit. The photo opportunities are terrific too.

I live in Canberra and took my mother in law for a visit. The entry price is reasonable. The interior is looking tired. It was built in 1980 and it definitely needs an update. The artificial flowers at the payment booth look tacky. The cafe was disappointing. The young lady on the register 19/3 did a great job in a... More

Plenty of parking, easy access via ramp and lift. Choice of viewing platforms - inside behind glass which in some cases has moisture between panes or the outside platform rivalling the Eifel Tower except stronger vertical bars - good for photos. Afternoon tea was pleasant, but no restaurant.
