The kids love me taking them up the spiral staircase to see the view. I have also taken visitors to see city of Bunbury, how the coastline/ port/ inlet all work, you get a good perspective from up there. Great for photos :)

A wonderful 360 degree view of the city and ocean. A must see if visiting Bumbury. Free of charge to climb the tower but the gates are locked at a certain time at night. Beautiful grass, gardens and benches along paths and stairs to follow...More

We climbed the tower at night to check out the city views and lights. There’s a fantastic view of the city and the ocean. It was a little windy when we climbed but still worth it.

Not a hard climb up the steps - you can take your time - and so worth the view of Bunbury. You can see the whole town from up there. Good spot to take visitors.

Accessible if you can manage a short stair climb, and no cost to experience 360 views of the city that is surrounded by water

Fantastic view for 360 deg Round the tower. Not too much parking near by but we managed to get a spot and people seemed to be always leaving and arriving. Definitely worth a look from the top.

Good views over the city and surrounds. Worth the walk to the top. Better on a dark and clear evening..

Fun to climb and see the views from several different levels. Not too busy despite it being over the Christmas period. We walked up from town but you can drive too.

We huffed and puffed up to the top of the tower with 2 young ones with us. But this is definitely a worthwhile climb to the top of the tower. It allowed us to have an excellent view of Bunbury and the Indian Ocean.

We took a quick walk up to the tower from our hotel to check out the view. It is an easy climb to the top and well worth the effort. As they say, on a clear day you can see forever with 360 degree views...More
