List of tallest buildings in Canberra

This list of tallest buildings in Canberra ranks the tallest in Australia's capital city by height. This ranking system, created by the US-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat includes the height to a spire but not to an antenna.[1] The Lovett Tower, at 93 metres (305 ft) and 26 storeys, is the tallest in the city. It is in the Woden Town Centre, a commercial district of Canberra.

The maximum height of buildings in Canberra Central is 617 metres (2,024 ft) above sea level, generally about 50 metres (160 ft) above ground level in Canberra City, in compliance with the RL617 rule in the National Capital Authority's National Capital Plan.[2][3] As a result, the highest buildings are now found in the outer town centres, such as Phillip and Belconnen.
