When we entered in the Telstra Tower, we were welcomed. A lady gave some data, like the Telstra Tower is 195.2 meters high. We paid her as well.
We took the elevator. It was fast!
Then we were out and were admiring the views of...More
This really is a must do for visitors to Canberra. There are great views of Canberra and the surrounding areas. It can be a bit windy up there but the views make it worth the effort. You can extend your stay by having a drink...More
Black mountain "Telstra tower" provides 180degree views of Canberra! Great place for morning or afternoon tea! It was quiet windy when we visited but outlook was beautiful! The bonus of Senior card discount was great too.
Yes it’s showing it’s age but the view itself never gets old. The ticket price is cheap (even cheaper for seniors). You can go to the upper outer deck - be aware it’s super windy up there, or inside through glass with explanations as to...More
We visited here many years ago and loved the restaurant. It has now closed and the snack bar does fair but limited menu. The views are still the same and it is the best place to get an overview of Canberra.
Despite it being the...More
The Telstra Tower and Black Mountain are well signposted and easy to find. Parking is also easy. The price of admission is reasonable and lifts to the viewing galleries are fast and efficient. The 360 degree views from either the enclosed or open viewing areas...More

For some warmth. Check the day's weather for what to wear otherwise. It does not change much from the weather on the ground it's not that high.
Hi All, We are planning a trip to Canberra in late April of 2012, I know it's a LONG time away, but we're trying work out how much time we need to spend there to fit everything in that we want to do, etc... so I was hoping for some advice! We are driving so will have a car, and there are the 2 adults plus our daughter who will then be three. I have a list of all the things we'd be interested in doing, clearly not all are going to be possible to do, but I was wanting some advice on...More

You haven't mentioned any outdoor activities and I think that's one of the real draws of Canberra. Plan some time to go to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve when you go to the Deep Space Complex. Also, your daughter would enjoy the child-oriented exhibits at the Visitors Center at Namadgi National Park and you could then do a short hike somewhere in the park--ask the ranger for recommendations.

And add the War Memorial (it is very good) and could be several hours (the 5pm Last Post event requires about 30 mins and again is very moving). Also the Old Parliament House is very interesting and worth a visit (one hour) For National Gallery could be one hour or 3 hours (depends on your interest in art) plus any special shows that are on, Portrait Gallery one hour, National Library we spent only 40 mins (good small museum) plus a coffee overlooking the lake. Not sure about public...More
Telstra Tower (Black Mountain) (1 Replies)
HELP! Can anyone out there, advise me about day bus tours in Canberra that include the Telstra Tower. I have trawled tour websites, but to no avail. Or is there even a public bus that has scheduled runs there. I thought Telstra Tower, would be one of the popular touristy places to visit, with a good view of the city, or maybe not! Look forward to any reply, Cheers and Thanks.
