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

Wherever we go we normally will go to their highest point. This one of course we didn't miss. Absolutely great view, wish they had some glass box like the one in Melbourne or walking outside like Q1 in gold coast. But in general we loved it.

We had the Sydney Tower Eye as part of a package. It is interesting to get a view of the city. Try and go on a clear day. I wouldn't necessarily go if it wasn't included in the package.

We hope you enjoyed your visits using our multi-attraction ticket. A clear day would be the "classic" viewing experience, but we think all conditions bring out different highlights of our beautiful city & harbour. Thanks for the review, Sara. More

I went to the Sydney Tower Eye and i really thought it will be very high and there will be lots of things to see but the place is quite small. It was okay

Thanks for the review, Wandi R. I'm afraid it doesn't get much higher in Sydney - we're the tallest observation deck in the state! Hopefully you still enjoyed your visit. More

Three of us went there around midday on the 6th of September 2014. We already had tickets because we bought the package deal from Sydney Aquarium. There were no one in the que when we arrived and there were two staff behind the counter. I went to one of them and explained that we already had tickets. She told me... More

Cool view of the city, We went at lunch time and ended up being the only people on the tour so was cool to do the skywalk alone with the tour. Cool experience, if you don't have time for bridge walk I would recommend this.

Lucky! We bet you enjoyed the one-on-one tour of our state capital, Jamie. We actually get a lot of exclusive bookings from people who are planning to pop the question on the SKYWALK. We haven't heard a "no" yet! Thanks for your review More

You'll find one of the best views from the top of Sydney Tower Eye. It is very easy to get to. While there was a little wait for the lift, once you get to the top it is amazing. On a sunny day you can see 360-degrees with no obstructions. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the great review, adamltrewin. There may be short delays with the lifts on busier days, however it's a long way up - even for our high speed lifts! We're glad you enjoyed our views. It sounds like you came on a perfect day, too. See you again soon. More

Twenty six dollars per person and what to you get?

Hi PPKGPJ - Thanks for your review. We're grateful when guests provide us an insight into why their visit didn't live up to their expectations. The SKYWALK is a separate experience involving safety equipment and a guided tour which is why an additional cost is involved - not all of our guests are brave enough to face the challenge! Our...
