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.

Whilst in Bunbury we decided to go to the top of the tower and look around. Not to much energy need to be expended if you are not that fit. Just take it easy and when at the top, hold onto your hat, and enjoy...More

Marlston Tower 289 steps later from street level, we arrived at the top. There is sea around three quarters of the view but worth it for a look. The views show Back Beach, the former Jetty Road, Koombana Beach and the surrounding town. Most of...More
