    1. I remember the controversy when they wanted to build the Tower on Black Mountain. Then when it was built The Tower became Canberra’s iconic landmark and a first class tourist attraction. It was somewhere special to go and enjoy a meal overlooking Canberra from the revolving restaurant.
      Now it has become a disgrace for Canberra due to total neglect by greedy corporation and no-one cares. Canberra has been put to shame and there is nothing to draw interest for visitors to this city.
