At $17.50 for the family it was really good value. The views are amazing from the inside obsevation deck as well as the outside. If you are going outside beware to rug up as it was freezing out there. The cafe was good value but a limited menu available. We spent about an hour and a half there and really enjoyed it. Well worth doing and only about a 5 minute drive from Civic (the main shopping precinct)

It costs $7.50 per adult to go up Telstra Tower. If the weather is good you will have great views over Canberra. If you don't want to spend the money then go up Mount Ainslie but the views are different. You also get to view a 70s movie about how the tower was built.

Been up here a few times now. Whilst the view is great, the staff need working on so that they are more helpful and welcoming. Some indicator signs on the observation decks would be great

We were lucky enough to have a clear still perfect Canberra winters day. The view was glorious, it was great to do at the end of our visit and point out all the places we'd been. The video they show describing the site is hilarious as it dates back to the early 1980's and we laughed so much at the bad fashion, old phones etc - they really need to bring that into the 21st Century!

We spent a couple of hours here before heading back to Sydney. Nice to get outside and hike around a bit before sitting in the car all the way back to Sydney. Spend the 7.50 and go up in the tower for the views on a good day - it is well worth it. Nice to sit and chat at the cafe and take in the views too.
