Eureka Skydeck - Review
This is the highest vantage point from inside a building in the Southern Hemisphere. And it’s magnificent. A quick lift takes you from the ground to the 88th floor. All of Melbourne lies sprawled out beneath you. There’s a specific way to going around viewing things here. As soon as you reach the 88th floor, approach the counter staff to book the Edge experience. You’ll have to wait at least 10 – 20 minutes for your turn so click away with your camera to your hearts satisfaction till then. What’s the Edge you ask? It’s a small platform that extends out of the building’s main body. The floor is clear glass, so you feel as if you were suspended in the air. It’s a freaky experience.
In order to get some stunning panoramic view of the Melbourne city, you should go on the top of the Eureka Skydeck. The 88th floor of this building has something in store for you which will please your eyes to the T. The best way to explore this attraction is by getting the Eureka Skydeck tickets from the ticket counter. If you want to ditch the line, then you can book the Eureka Skydeck tickets, well in advance. You can also book the Eureka Skydeck to get a guided tour of the skydeck. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Melbourne Itinerary 6 Days.

Eureka Skydeck, Melbourne Reviews
I was taken here as a surprise by family, it gave you a great view of Melbourne from a viewing platform 200m + above the ground. This place also has viewing binoculars around the deck to view different buildings and iconic parts of Melbourne.. The sky deck box will test the mind of those who are afraid of heights, its an amazing experience by standing/sitting and having a see through floor deck and walls, not for the faint hearted .
I came here when it was a windy day so the edge was not available, but luckily it was just before the sunset. The ride up the 88 floors was extremely exciting in a way. My ears were blocked by the pressure. I was extremely impressed with the photoshoot that was available. $15 may be a steep price, but the final result is extremely nice (it is fine to ask them to retake it, and you will also get a digital copy as well!) There is also a $5 photo booth there (coins only though!) From the tower, you can spot all the places around the city. The view of the city at night is extremely nice. Slowly you see the lights turn on. Other than that, you can also send a postcard from the highest letter box in Australia. It is a great experience.
A must do while in Melbourne. Great views of the city and with information and what your looking at all the way round. Fairly priced for a tourist attraction. The edge is an introduction experience and can be little scary but it's very safe.
Very decently priced for something so breathtaking. The Skydeck costs about $20. The Edge costs more but who needs that in their life? We came here at 9pm on a cold, rainy night. It was very quiet and foggy but we were lucky that the fog lifted in time and everything was very picturesque. The staff are very friendly and good at their job, one even took a photo of my friends and I.
Eureka Skydeck 88 allows you a view over whole Melbourne. I was impressed how big Melbourne really is. Unfortunately you can't see the Melbourne Star because it is blocked by a different building. The skydeck itself is illuminated very less, so you can get a better view over the city by night. They also have a little kiosk at the top, where you can get beer, ice cream, coffee, ... . Hope you enjoy!
