  • Great views from the viewing platform. Too bad the revolving restaurant doesn't operate. There is a small café on the viewing level. 
  • Great view but a little expensive at $7.50 adult for a short lift ride and walk around the tower. Didn't try the cafe and next level was closed for renovations. 
  • Spectacular 360 views of Canberra & surrounding area all the way to the snowy mountains. Well worth the $7.50 entry

  • Nice place to drive to and city view on your way and from up there are quite impressive. A little museum under the tower is a great impression of how communication has evolved over the passage of time. Recommend to visit while you are visiting Canberra.
  • The view was so nice but a old woman who is working in the tower coffee shop made us a bad morning. She gave us cold food and used paper cups for coffee. I saw other customers all glasses cup. Because I asked her some food on her table but that was for lunch. So she up sad said no that is not for breakfast what do u want? Then we got some cold food. I don't understand why this kinds service in this beautiful place.
  • Firstly the women at the restaurant was lovely. She makes a great coffee. Loved the tower. The views are fantastic. Well worth the visit.
  • Amazing views. Free parking. Iconic venue. Well maintained facilities. Friendly staff. Worth a visit.
  • Didn't go up the Tower $7.50 to go up. But was hoping for some views, however only brief glimpses are possible from around the base. The car park further down the mountain provide better free views over the city and Lake.
