Telstra Tower

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Telstra Tower is Canberra’s iconic landmark, rising 195.2 meters above the summit of Black Mountain.

As one of Canberra’s most visited tourist destinations, Telstra Tower offers 360 degree panoramic views of Canberra and its surrounding countryside from an indoor observation deck and two outdoor viewing platforms.

As you drive through the picturesque Capital City of Australia, make sure to look out for Telstra Tower on the horizon. In the night sky, Telstra Tower illuminates Black Mountain with a colourful light display. The lights change from night to night, with the colours based around local events, schools and charities.

For a truly special experience, visit Telstra Tower in the evening and watch the cityscape light up.

Stay a while and enjoy a coffee or sweet treat in our café, whilst admiring the breathtaking views of Canberra.

Additional facilities include free parking, Gift Shop, Executive Briefing Centre, a fantastic collection of telephones from yesteryear and access to Black Mountain walking tracks.
