Located at Level 88, Eureka Skydeck is Melbourne's new 'must-see' attraction. Skydeck 88 is the only observation deck in the world that can thrill you with the Edge - a glass cube which projects 3 metres out from the building, with you in it! « less

This was the best view of the city! Would recommend the edge experience as it definitely puts you out the side to see an amazing view!

Very crowded on the school holidays. My eleven y.o. enjoyed it. I thought it was expensive, especially parking, for the experience you got. They try to pack too many into "the edge" room, this spoils the experience. I think it would look better of a night time.

I decided to take a friend here as it was there first time in Melbourne. After showing them around the CBD I took my friend to the skydeck and WOW were we blown away. Was reasonable price and there was plenty to see! I got to point out all the places we had been during the day and see parts... More

I'm going to break this review into two parts: the Skydeck and the Edge. Eureka Skydeck: This is a must do Melbourne attraction. On a sunny day, you get 360 degree views of the greater Melbourne area from 88 floors up. It is one of those perspectives of a metro area that I truly enjoy. There are looking glasses that... More

Come and Experience Melbourne in its 360 degree beauty, Once paying for your admission ticket on ground floor, it only takes 38seconds to reach the Sky Deck. The price of the Sky Deck it self just gets you admission to the fantastic city views, when you are up there you can purchase a ticket for "The Edge" to me this... More

If you are into high-rise tower views, this is quite a good experience. Walking outside the tower into the "glass brick" where you can see down to the ground 88 levels below is wonderfully disconcerting. I took out-of-town relatives to it and they enjoyed it. Extensive views in every direction across Melbourne. Tip #1: Endeavour to go on a clear... More

I recommend going day and night since both are fantastic views! (you can get a night and day ticket). The Edge is expensive but worth it and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Don't go midday as it is very busy (less busy early morning and late afternoon/night).

Edge is highly overpriced for what you get, since it takes about 10 minutes and you're not even allowed to take photos or video. And the floor is not even really full glass... it's just small, scratched squares and you don't see that well under your feet. Don't pay for it. But I recommend anyone to visit the Skydeck itself,...

Well worth going to Skydeck 88. Amazing views, best in Melbourne. A bit hard to find but behind the Southbank River Walk. Coffee Shop and souvenirs available with grat photo opportunities. Although I am scared of heights this was fine. Lift really fast. A must do in Melbourne.

We loved the views from the observation deck but would have appreciated more info what what we were actually seeing. We don't visit Melbourne that often so the layout of the city was not at all obvious to us. It really needs either an audio tour or info posted around the observation deck about what can be seen from each... More
