88 floors in 38 seconds in the elevator, woohoo what a trip, up and down. really enjoyed our trip up the tower and managed to pick a good day to look over the city at sunset, pretty spectacular, watching others walk the plank with VR glasses on is also entertaining. Staff were friendly, nice to deal with and very "covid" aware which was nice to see. Could do with a few more quality trinkets in the ground floor gift shop as most of the stuff is cheap foreign rubbish. we would have brought some souvenirs if there had been something worth buying.
This is an absolute must do in Melbourne. But id recommend going up late in the afternoon so you get to see the view in daylight, sunset and the night view. Moderately priced with concession deals. Super friendly staff and a FANTASTIC view !!!!!!
I was somewhat dubious about the Eureka Skydeck but it was really good. The staff were helpful and the little spyglasses aimed at well-known Melbourne features were fascinating. The views of the Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay were quite spectacular. Children like it, there are lots of things to do. Getting there is easy, if you take the Evan Walker Bridge you almost arrive on the doorstep. The Eureka Skydeck has Australia's tallest Post Box. I've been to the Empire State Building in New York City and the John Hancock Tower in Chicago, and I like the Eureka Skydeck better.
Please be aware of poor and unfair Admin service from Eureka Skydeck Admin. We visited the Skydeck on 4/4/21. We were a originally going to be a group of 3 adults and 3 children. I purchased a family ticket of 2 + 3 and a single adult ticket around 9:30am that day. A friend decided to join us later so I went online to purchase another single adult ticket. It was meant to be a straightforward online transactions as the first option itself is an adult ticket. I had not added any extra whatsoever. This occurred same morning around 11:25am. I immediately noticed that the final receipt came with additional full Family ticket and tickets for Edge for the entire family.. SOMETHING that I had not purchased. I tried ringing them immediately multiple times with no response. I emailed them immediately at 11:32am as I was shocked about this transaction. We visited the Ticket office after a few hours and explained the situation to the team member. He politely handed us a business card stating they will look in to it. No further explanation! I am receiving an email this morning that the tickets are non refundable and there is nothing they can do for me. We live in Adelaide and to return there this year is unlikely. You would not expect this attitude from such a large organisation and not in these times. I have emailed them again with less hope now and will look into further actions as this is plain and clear wrong. I wanted to alert people here to be mindful of this when they make online purchase with Eureka Skydeck. Thank you.
Great views from the top of this building. I felt it was a little busy after covid, as it’s not the most open place. But most people were respectful and could see I was trying my best to avoid people. The toilets are pretty mind bogling with their views.
Easy parking, staff were helpful in explaining entry and exit. Birds eye view of the greater Melbourne region. Perhaps a little limited on rainy days, but it was nice and peaceful. Clean facilities. Would rate it up with Sydney Tower and Reunion Tower in Dallas.
The Eureka Skydeck is now relegated to being the second tallest building in Melbourne with the neighbouring "Australia 108" due to be completed in 2020. This pair are located at Southbank in the centre of the city so you won't have difficulty seeing and finding them. (We got off at Flinders Street Station, walked across the Evan Walker bridge over the Yarra and followed the signs). We visited pre-lockdown in late February during the morning and it was very quiet. The admission fee was $25 per adult, with an additional $12 per adult for the optional "Edge" experience which we purchased. After quickly passing through the security screening we were whisked to the 88th floor on a high speed lift. Unlike some other similar attractions in the world there is no exposed view as you ascend so our first experience of the height was saved for walking around the spacious Skydeck Lounge. There are lots of viewfinders located around to pinpoint iconic sights below and we checked out a few whilst we headed to check-in at the "Edge" desk. They provided an electronic device which "calls" you when you are next in line and in our case this was less than 10 minutes. Along with a few others we were taken aside and asked to leave our cameras and bags in small lockers and put on protective covers over our footwear. This process is apparently to prevent accidental damage to the glass within the Edge cube although I think that horse may have already bolted. On entering the cube the surrounding glass is opaque so you cannot see out. There is then a distinct, unnerving noise of the mechanism used to extend the cube out from the tower and at the opportune moment the glass suddenly clears to show you and your fellow guests exposed in mid air about 900 feet from the streets below i.e. on the "edge". It's possibly not something you would want to do if you suffer from vertigo. That said, the view from the Edge is very similar to that of the Skydeck Lounge with the exception of the glass floor. It took me a minute or so to step off the metal struts on to the glass itself but best not to hang around (so to speak) as the experience only lasts for 5 minutes. Without a camera of your own to take photos you are reliant upon the Eureka staff taking a few shots of each party which they subsequently display for you to buy. (The staff also took a few shots of us on our own cameras on request). We thought the glass was marked and reflective so probably wouldn't have provided great photos but we'd have taken some regardless. We bought the official one anyway - there were options but we took the best one from three shots for $15. They then printed 3 postcard size copies of that photo and gave us an access code to download it at a later date. It would have been better to give us one of all three shots I thought. We took the opportunity to finish our 360 degrees tour of the lounge which gave good views over the city. There is an outdoor viewing area near the "Edge" which is better for taking photos without getting reflections. Overall our visit passed some time and gave us an overview of the city however you could possibly skip the "Edge" experience if you want to save some money (and time) without losing out too much. The neighbouring "Australia 108" building has been topped out but work was continuing at the time of our visit to complete the structure (see photo of some workmen having their own experience on the "edge" of a protruding section of glass which they were installing!). I don't believe there are plans to have a public viewing area when finished so Eureka Skydeck will retain that attraction.
My whole itinerary was thrown into chaos thanks for to the Covid virus. So I was trying to cram as much as I could into the last day. I was late back from an all day tour, but still managed to find the time to visit this observation deck thanks to their late opening. I got to see the bits of Melbourne I knew I was going to miss, which kind of helped me mentally from having to leave this beautiful city earlier than expected and return to the states.
This is good way to get a 360 degree bird's eye view of the city and you can spot all of the big landmarks from this vantage point. There are also a couple of outside viewing platforms. It is a good way to kill an hour and a good introduction to Melbourne. We also opted to pay extra to go into the Edge, which is a completely perspex box (including the floor!) that extends out from the side of the building. There is the opportunity to buy snacks/drinks at the top and there is a gift shop, as well as Australia's highest post box (with postcards and stamps available from the gift shop).
