Experience the panoramic views of Canberra from Telstra tower | Couple of Steps

The bizarre structure sitting atop the Black Mountain may remind you of the eye of Sauron from The Lord of the Rings franchise, which like the latter is practically visible from anywhere around the city. The iconic Telstra tower offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the city, and it’s easy to see why Canberra is known as the Bush Capital.

You will need to get up to the tower’s observation deck for a small fee to experience the view as the vegetation around the base of the tower will block your field of vision. The tower, which stands around 200 metres above the summit, is one of Canberra’s most popular tourist attractions. You get to see the city’s top highlights like Parliament House, The Royal Australian Mint, The War Memorial, and Mount Stromlo Observatory.
