Telstra Tower looking very tired

By ArandaBill 20 January 2013 21

Telstra Tower on Black Mountain, one of Canberra’s main tourist attractions, is an embarrasment to the city, and Canberra tourism. The public viewing areas are very shabby, access for visitors with disabilities is very poor, there is no signage pointing out Canberra’s principal attractions, the cups used by the coffee shop are a discrace and visitors are charged $7.50 for the privilage of the visit. 

I apologised to my interstate visitors and will not return in a hurry. The only positive was a great view of Canberra. Telstra may not in the tourism business, but the presentation of the Tower is not a good image for Telstra, the company mangaing the Tower for Telstra or Canberra tourism.

All involved need to shake up the presentation.

It is a bit of a relic, isn’t it? I wouldn’t even consider it a tourist attraction, more just a glorified landmark.

Sure is, a monument to how fast technology can change. Betcha Telstra now wishes they’d gone with the steel truss broadcast tower option now.
