We entered behind the CSIRO. It took us 35 minutes to walk to the top. Well defined track. Clear views. We could see clearly the snow on the Brindabellas.

Easy to find and well worth the effort to spend some time here looking at the park and the views. It is at the back of the city and you can combine with the Telstra Tower later in the morning.

Paid the $7.50 to go up the Telstra tower which was well worth it, the 360 views were fantastic and really help orientate the city. Cafe had nice coffee and a reasonable selection of snacks Worth a visit!

Took the kids on a school field trip and they were truly amazed and excited. Difficult time getting them back on the bus for the long trip home. Will go again.
