This was really worth the climb but I am not sure that if would satisfy safety requirements today. I don't like heights so only stayed at the top for a quick look around before climbing down. The views from the top were excellent though.

A reasonably easy climb up to a fabulous 360 degree view. You can see so far in all directions. Well worth it.

Now this was a fun adventure and the climb is not hard but if you are scared of heights, I would suggest taking it slow. The wind was really blowing when we were going up, and we could feel a little bit of a sway. Great view from the top and so glad we did this. What a great way to keep fit yet enjoy the surrounds.

This lookout is almost in the town centre, and gives views in all directions from a water tank on a small hill. You ascend by means of several metal stairs which are steep but sturdy. The top lookout is from inside the tank, and through metal lattices. Spaces have been made to enable photography. It is not a great experience, but it is close and easy!

Tower is situated in a good spot with a good view of the whole town. We were able to capture a few good photos from the top of the tower.

Visited on Tuesday 10th March. We climbed the steps to the top and were amazed at the views from the top. What a great way to see Port Augusta.

This water tower lookout gives a good bunch of views of Port Augusta and I'd heartily recommend coming here as not only is it fairly quiet it's free and the kids will enjoy it. It's the perfect sort of thing to do prior to any of the other stuff you want to see opening or in summer - after the other places have closed.

Don't plan too much time here however as, really, it's a lookout over a small rural city.

On our way to Alice Springs (Port Augusta to Coober Pedy), we decided to start our day with a walk up the water tower.
We had 3 families (6 adults and 2C aged 3 & 6). We all went up and enjoyed the beautiful views from the top.
It took about 20 minutes all up and was a nice start to our day.
The gardens around the water tower was also lovely.

In need of serious repairs! My boyfriend Rasheem fell down the stairs and broke his ankle! ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING! The Port Augusta council should be very disappointed with the safety standard. Give it a miss! The views weren’t worth it!

You only need maximum 15 minutes here but it has a good view of the two halves of the town. Steps are easy enough to climb to the top.
