  • If you are visiting Canberra and you want 360 degree view of the Canberra, this is a place to visit. There is a $7.50 for adult & $3.00 for kids entry fee to viewing deck, which also has a cafe at the viewing deck. There is exhibition centre which has all different types of the telephones in display. The place is not very busy so there is an ample of time to rest, have a coffee and enjoy the view of the Canberra city.
  • A great place to get a view of all of Canberra. I particularly like the fact there are outdoor viewing platforms here which are great for taking pictures. There is also an indoor viewing platform with a coffee shop that serves decent coffee. The entry price is also very reasonable, much cheaper than towers I have visited in some other cities. The tower is open till 10pm so it's a good thing to do towards the end of the day after everything else closes at 5 if you are visiting Canberra.
