It's the perfect place to start your Sydney adventure. With views stretching out as far as the eye can see in all directions, there's no better place to find your bearings. Sydney Tower Eye is a true year-round visitor attraction. Gazing out across the beautiful harbour city you'll be captivated by the views of stunning Sydney in all its glory. Crystal clear skies in winter make for the best viewing distances of the year, while in Spring the explosion of Jackaranda Trees covers the Eastern Suburbs in vibrant splashes of purple. Sydney is at its best in Summer, and guests soak up the city's laid back Summer vibe from the cool air-conditioned deck as the streets swelter below. Autumn brings gorgeous orangey glows and the best sunsets of the year - the perfect time to head out on a SKYWALK for 'that' picture of the city and harbour in the background. « less

Visited the Sydney Tower Eye 2 years ago now and had a buffet lunch in the rotating restaurant. Food was fantastic, beautiful views and overall a brilliant experience!

the views were incredable. The bulding was nice and the elvators were fast and efficent. I think ive been there durin the best hour, twilight. I strongly recomend you visit it at twilight because you will be able to admire sydneys night beauty and day beauty. Of course the sun setting is also a wonderful detail!!

We went up the tower just before sunset. So we were able to see the city whilst still light, and as it darkened. It's absolutely stunning at night time. Definitely the best time to go to get maximum beauty of the city.

Visited the Tower Eye with my teenage son, and thought it would be a cool thing for dad and son to do a bonding thing on the Skywalk. Even though it was the first "scary thing" I ever did, it wasn't scary at all. It's much of a mindset thing. Even though you're a thousand feet above with just a... More

I've been to the top of a lot of tall buildings in the world. The views of Sydney are great, of course, but what really stands out is the "4-D" show you see before going up in the elevator. I was very curious as to what 4-D was and I found out. It was truly unique. Very enjoyable.

The standout feature of the visit to the Eye Tower was the friendliness and dedication as to which the staff show and present. We did the Skywalk (the 360 degree walk around the outside) for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend it! The guide which we had was absolutely fantastic, and she took the time to speak to everyone... More

The Sydney Tower Eye was the second observation tower we visited in Australia (the first one was in Gold Coast - which is another highly recommended stopover if you even wind up in GC) and we thought it was a good experience. There's a 4D movie experience, which was okay but nothing exceptional for it to really stick, before visitors... More

Sydney Tower Eye is always the first place I visit when in Sydney. Try to get there at opening time, as it can get quite busy during the day on weekends or school holidays. We had Merlin passes so we ended up visiting 4 times during the week, which allowed us to see Sydney during the morning and afternoon, sunset... More

Thanks for your great review. And to come up 4 times in one week is impressive. We will pass your comments onto the photo team as they shouldn't be coming across pushy as we want our guests to be enjoying themselves and make their own decision regarding if they want to buy the photos or not. But overall we are... More

Worth the visit ! The views of Sydney are fabulous and although I am not very good with heights I really enjoyed the time we spent there. The 4D movie was nothing very special but thats ok. Had a laugh. Great way to get your bearings and work out where everything is situated.
