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
It's such a beautiful place! You can see all of Melbourne. The views are mind blowing. Their food options are pretty standard and leaves a lot to be desired. I definitely recommend going in the evening just before sunset so you can enjoy the city both in daylight as well as the sunset and the lights start coming on and you get to see the gorgeous nightlife of the city.
Brilliant views and a cafe with probably the best prices in Melbourne. I got a regular coffee, a HUGE slice of a delicious lemon slice and a bottle of water for $10! Usually tiny cafes with no competition charge outrages prices! Like the Melbourne Zoo or airport! Definitely worth a visit!
Amazing view and heaps of details around the floor as to what you are looking at. The best time to view this place is early in the morning when they first open. Then you can have the whole place to yourself. Even if you have a fear of heights, you will still love the view. Well worth it.
The very top of Melbourne gives you just what you would expect, beautiful views in every direction. Definitely worth paying an equivalent to one Melbourne meal to get up sky-high and enjoy some altitude. Pleasant surprise that they do sell coffee at top too, so yous can sit down enjoy and take it all in.
Best place to glance Melbourne at once. Has a spectacular view at night. Even good for a date night. Further, can go on sky deck you are not afraid of heights and feel the height.
