Owner description: At 250 metres above street level, Sydney Tower Eye is the highest point in Sydney - perfect for finding your bearings or just taking it all in. 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.

We did the skywalk at 10.am and when we came out it was almost impossible to move in the observation deck. If you are going, go early or late in the evening. The sky walk was OK, nothing fantastic really. But I had the same experience as Ali K said in her review - we paid for the photos on... More

The view from the observation level is great, nice 360 degree panoramic view of the city and surrounding area. The tour starts with a short and very loud 4D movie, then a 40 second elevator ride to the top of the tower. You can pretty much see everything in about ten minutes; there is, of course, the gift shop and... More

I can't believe it happened in Australia. This was the only BAD experience I had in my entire vacation there. They charged $39 for about 8 or 9 of my photos taken on skywalk in CD ROM. When I came home and opened the package and put the CD in the computer, it had no picture personal pics. Just some... More

This is a great place to take in the beautiful Sydney landscape - there's no better view, unless you're in an airplane. The Tower has a full 360 degree view of the city and all its charms - the opera house, Harbour bridge, ferries and distinctive neighborhoods - with lots of neat informational maps and pictures to guide your experience....

We visited the Tower on a bright day and could see kilometers away which was great. You can take photos but unfortunately there is no external access so it's behind a window. Some people booked the SkyWalk, we did not do it as we found the price too expensive. There is a little shop and a café at the top.... More

We were booked on an early session so the tower was quite quiet. The 4D film was ok but did not see the point of the photo before going in the lift. Quick look around and some great views. A number of tall buildings have and are going up which are and will continue to obstruct some of the views.... More

The lady was real friendly and had an excellent time! the facts were great and so was the view. However, I would of liked a cheaper price on the goods considering I spent alot for the observation and skywalk.

I spent a week in Sydney with my boyfriend. We bought the Ultimate Sydney Pass, which included quite a few attractions, one of which being the Sydney Tower Eye and Skywalk. The guide on the Skywalk was very informative, as she pointed out many key locations while we were on the viewing platform. The view is beautiful from the outside... More
