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.

Amazing view and amazing price. The sunset looks dead drop gorgeous from the height, full stop. Coffee/tea is great, however I wish they had a better variety of food but no biggie. Hope to see Eureka 89 soon. The service people are lovely, and the bathrooms are very clean.
The Skydeck was fantastic! You get excellent views of Melbourne. The main landmarks of Melbourne can be seen. They are highlighted with mini scopes that will allow a closer look. I didn't go out on to the Edge but I did go out on the Terrace. If you have the time and the opportunity, it is definitely worth it.
Not for the ones afraid of heights. Go here if you want a great view of Melbourne to a reasonable price. You go up the tower with an elevator that does 9m/s, that's basically three floors per minute! Once up in the tower you can look out in all directions with some binoculars available at some windows and tubes pointing out points of interest. They also offer a thing they call the Edge experience (costs extra) where you get to stand in a room with glass flooring so you can see straight down.
Was here for a function which included night drinks. Great venue, the pillars make for a sit down a bit interesting, but that makes it more fun. We also had an evening cocktail party, the staff were a bit strict on the alcohol, shutting it off at 9:15 when we had it to 9:30. Didn't worry me, but some got a bit shirty about it. Anyway, all good fun.
Good place to go once every now and again. Got to do glass box at least once even if your scared of heights like me. Good challenge to face fears. Like the green background photos, good fun. More binoculars would be good. Like the new monitors showing some history. A bit more of this would be good too with talking information. Glad they have upgraded the security as well.
