Telstra Tower is Absoutely Spectacular at night! Our class went as a 3 day trip and we just missed sunset but when we got to the top, we were gobsmacked by the view at night! I would recomend Telstra Tower to anyone and I can't wait to go back!

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here, and it was a faboulous night. The night was a bit cloudy but overall the view is spectacular! The food was great. Being new to Australia from the US we decided to try a platter of mixed grill. My husband had a seafood platter and I had a meat platter. It was interesting trying emu, crocodile and kangaroo, along with bugs and prawns. The servers were very attentive and pleasant. The menu is a bit pricey but for a special occasion you can't beat it!
