Eureka Skydeck, Melbourne Reviews
Very cool. I didn't bother with 'the edge' and I don't think I missed out, but horses for courses really! There are neat little viewfinders that are focused on a particular landmark so you just look down them and are instantly looking at the landmark without having to try and locate them yourselves. The viewfinders are set at two heights per lookout so children can also use them. There are also binocular posts which are free to use. I spent around 45 minutes on the observation floor, and used Australia's highest postbox!
Spent New Years eve here. Was a good night, food was good, service was great considering it was a night that not many people want to work. Great 360 degree views of the city. Was interesting to be above the fireworks being on level 88. Expensive but worth the experience.
Great views over all of Melbourne! No line when we went so nice an quick to get up to the top. Didn't pay extra for the 'edge' experience - a corner of the building with a metal cage around you. It had a long wait and was a bit scary looking for our kids.
Excellent views of Melbourne and suburbs as well as Port Phillip Bay. Best visited on a clear day. Nice cafe to get coffee and cxake while admiring the views and relaxing during a busy day exploring Melbourne. The Edge experience gives a different perspective from the glass walls and floor. Well signed so that visitors can identify landmarks from the deck easily.
Amazing place to visit, but be prepared to have your personal space violated. There are way too many people allowed on the observation deck and all of level 88. It is also a bit stuffy up there. The trip in the elevator is surprisingly quick and not that frightening. Worth the visit. Bring a good SLR camera for some great snaps.
