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.

Eureka Skydeck Reviews & Ratings

  • 84 floors, in 34 seconds!! To experience this most fascinating thing, you should definitely visit Eureka Skydeck! I have visited it during the night time. And it was beautiful!! I'm sure it's just as beautiful during the day time 😊 Lovely place, there's even an area where it's open as in its coveted with strong net. The rest is with strong hard glass. It's very safe, nothing to fear. People afraid of heights should be a bit careful. The open area might be pretty windy. There's attached binoculars too with very sharp, clear and accurate view. A must go. Lovely service and I'm sure this experience will be remembered by you forever 😊❤️

  • Definitely worth a visit to Eureka Skydeck if you want to get a total view of Melbourne! Eat access here and good facilities with a cafe up the top so you can stay and enjoy the full 360 degree views of Melbourne which are spectacular. Experience the edge for a little more thrill but great for all ages.

  • There’s plenty to see from the sky deck! 360 view for miles! Lots of photo opportunities. Absolutely stunning. The Edge experience is good fun for children! But didn’t do it for me. Photos sold at additional cost. No cameras allowed in the experience☹️

  • The view is gorgeous and offers an awesome sight of the city. I’d recommend opting out of the Edge experience. You’re not allowed to take your own picture from your phone, because they’ll take it for you and charge you about $20AUD in addition to the fare you paid to get up there, which I don’t think is cheap. Plus, the view from the rolling out little room is no better than the ones you get standing adjacent to it.

  • Eureka Skydeck- The tallest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere. Have been here a few times and always great to see the beautiful city of Melbourne from the top. Edge experience is something worth doing as well if the wait times are not too bad. Both day and night views show a different aspect of Melbourne. Definitely recommend if you are in Melbourne city.
