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

Really great views and worth a look on a clear day but very expensive for what is essentially a ride in a lift.

A good place to visit if you want to have a glimpse of sydney from the top. We did not take the skywalk, but if you had visited KL tower or petronas towers, this is similar to that.

It is one of the places you shouldn't miss when you are in Sydney. The view from the top is amazing and fantastic. You can view the city and surroundings in 360 degree. However you can't really see the whole opera house as it was partially blocked by another building. Nevertheless it is worth to pay for the money as... More

I had wanted to do this for ages with my 18 year old daughter and 20 yr son. Leah from New Zealand was a great guide. Touched base with us all during the course of the tour the right balance of information and just enjoying the sheer impact of the environment! could not recommend it more! You will never forget...

I was a bit hesitant to do the skywalk due to my fear of heights, but once I was out there it was incredible. We went for an evening timeslot on a perfectly clear Sydney night. Beautiful views all round and our guide (Sam) was great.I would recommend this attraction whole heartedly. Well worth the money.

Organised this for my partner for his birthday. We arrived a little early so were offered to do the earlier skywalk. Our guide was amazing! he was knowledgeable and also made the whole experience lots of fun. The whole experience is well priced and definitely worth the view

Unfortunately, we chose a day when there was a lot of cloud, but we still saw plenty but not as far as if the day had been clear. A chance you take when you have limited time, I guess. We didn't do the Skywalk, again due to the weather, it seemed pointless. Definitely a must though, just choose your day... More

Having been to Burj Khalifa in Dubai, I wasn't really impressed with this one. But for someone who's not seen something like this before, it could be a nice experience. The views are good. It is advisable to go around evening when you can see in day light as well in the night. Day views are better as you can... More

Frankly speaking I'm really not impressed with the tower eye and moreover the skywalk. You have to pay 43 AUD for the skywalk for 1 hour and its a complete waste of money. If you are really interested you can go for tower eye and catch the glimpse of Sydney but don't spend for Sky Walk

I thought the views from the Sydney Tower Eye were amazing. We didn't do the Skywalk, but the observation deck is enough. You can walk around the circular deck and see all over Sydney and beyond. It was overcast when we got there (see photo 1) but cleared up a short time later (see photo 2). The views were still... More
