Based on a French style staircase the tower is a 100 step climb to the top. Don't worry about running out of energy as there are multiple stop-off points on the way up.

Once at the top you may be unsettled by the gentle swaying of the tower. You can then have some great photo opportunities.

This looks impressive from the ground and the 100 steps to the top are prtty fun. t can give you quite a bit of vertigo as the tower sways, but there are stops in the middle of each floor to help you get your bearing.

While I enjoyed the climb, to be totally honest I was a little disappointed with the views. To the back of the park the views were amazing, but the views to the front towards the city are now totally impeded by a large tree. This isn't a train smash as you get amazing views at other spots in the park, but I was expecting more.

On a side note, when I got to the top I came across a "loving" couple, so it must be quite a romantic spot ;)

Fun tower to climb for both the exercise and the view. Bring your camera and get some great shoots. The view is beautiful all around.

The first settlement in Perth [ a military decision by the then governor ] in 1829 saw tall trees on Mt Eliza used as lookout and communication positions to see Fremantle and the coast. This tower allows the visitor to have a similar vantage point. It's a pleasant addition to a stroll through beautiful Kings Park.

Came back to this tower for another visit after a considerable gap. Good exercise to climb it quickly and time yourself to the top. My daughter was able to do it in 30 seconds, which is not bad for a young child.
