There is a better place to view the city but its quite the tower. I have some great drone footage on my youtube - thedannyblackvlog its a nice drive to the top but worth seeing.

A must do attraction if you visit the ACT (Australian Capitol Territory). Only kilometres from Canberra city. On a clear day you can see for miles @ 360 degrees. Spend a few dollars to take the lift to the viewing platform to take some spectacular photos.

Impressive tower which lights up in different colours at night. Well worth to spend the few dollars to take the lift inside the tower to get the magnificent Canberra lookout. Great picnic spot too with local fauna and flora.

surprisingly good view, the cafe at the top was great, have a snack indoors with a great view all around. It was very winding (that was an adventure and a bit unsettling),

A great trip out and some fantastic views from the top. Plus, it was so windy up there you had to hold onto your glasses! An inspiring exhibition of mobile phones really opens your eyes into how far they have come in such a short period of time. A must do attraction.

This tower is a great place to visit early in your Canberra trip because it allows you to see Canberra as a real map!

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
