  • The view is great but the building is dated and you have to pay for it. Would love to see an updated cafe and shop. Be sure to go to the basement level to watch the movie of the making of the tower. My favorite part of the place.
  • If the day is clear, best view of Canberra. 360 degree view from the tower. Plenty free parking and affordable tower entree fee. Check my photos to get the idea how it looks from up there
  • U expect a ''Telsta tower' to have free internet, they don't LOOL -_- bruh....
  • Not sure the Telstra Tower is worth paying $7.50 a visit to experience.. we went at night & whilst the view was pretty good I wouldn't go there again at night, I'd be interested to check out the view during the day but not in a hurry to go back.
  • Best views of Canberra if you're not afraid of heights!! Would be nice to have some more up to date info about the building

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
