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.

Intersting seeing all the old phones and technology on display. Views from up top really showed how city was planned and how it has grown

I visited this tower with friends and choose to be here around evening. I think its the best place to be around sunset. Generally there is crowd during holiday/weekend evenings hence time your visit accordingly.If you are visiting during winter please do carry a jacket.

I saw great views of Canberra and surrounding countryside from the Tower. It is certainly worth a visit. For the frugally minded, Mount Ainslie is a better option.

Been to Canberra a few times but this was our first visit to the Telstra tower. Good view from outside by worth the $7.50 to go up the tower. They have signs as you go around pointing out the sights in each window. Also worth the short climb to have a look without the windows in the way
