The DNA Tower is actually like a strand of DNA, the basis of human life, as discovered by Crick and Watson. It's quite a climb to get to the top -- the view is magnificent. It's in King's Park -- a bit isolated but it's...More

I’ve been climbing this tower since I was a kid. Used to have sweeping views of the city and western suburbs but trees now block most of these views. Still worth climbing up.

A simple climb in the gardens. I just didn't get the feeling it was that safe for younger kids so they felt excluded.

Not a huge amount to review really, metal staircase with two entwined sets of stairs, is a bit of a climb to the top but not unmanageable even if you aren’t too fit and it does have platforms to rest at several stages. Views are...More

Easy climb to the top for views of the surrounding area. Located in King's Park. Good way for the kids to get rid of excessive energy.

Located in King's Park botanical gardens, this attraction was not easy to find as the sign posts were confusing. We eventually got there and climbed the 100+ steps. The view from the top is good but don't expect city views. It was a windy day...More
