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

I have lived in Melbourne all my life and sadly it took a visitor from Interstate to get me to visit this attraction. The entry price is good value and they cater for different family numbers, e.g 1 Adult and two children. The very quick elevator ride up to the 88th floor has you landing at a modern well laid...

To be honest, I am afraid of heights. But as long as i stood far away from the full length glass, I was okay. The views were spectacular, but it's the sort of place you only need to go once. If you have time to spare, and the $20 entry fee, it's worth a look.

Situated at the heart of the city near Flinders St. Station. If you are travelling to Melbourne, be very sure that you don't want to miss the top-view of the city at night from Eureka Skydeck. Buy iVenture Cards from Melbourne Visitor Centers (buy at least 2 day pass) and you'll be able to enjoy a lot along with saving... More

I am a Melburnian so I really enjoyed the views from Eureka. Noticing familiar landmarks was good fun and my partner and I spent 1.5hrs up there at sunset. I went back in 2012, so it wasn't recent but I can't imagine much has changed. The Edge experience was not as great as I had thought it would be. The... More

I visited this attraction with friends and it's very good, fantastic view and lots of information about the view. You can certainly get your bearings from this place. Worthwhile stop if you are in Melbourne.

I went with a bunch of girlfriends and it cost $25 each for a concession ticket up to the sky deck AND a ticket for the 'Edge' experience. We had a great night, lots of fun and an awesome way to view the city :) Be aware no cameras in the edge sadly :(

Eureka was the best experience for looking over the city of Melbourne, also you can look through little holes that are zoomed on local attractions that you could visit. The edge experience was a great thin to do.

This was the one touristy activity on a girl's shopping weekend to Melbourne. It was within walking distance of our hotel. We booked tickets at the door and it was reasonably priced. The hotel gave us 10% of vouchers, saving us a few dollars too! Unfortunately the Edge experience was over a forty five minute wait, so we passed and... More

I booked tickets for our anniversary as we had never been up the top (finally got around to it!). The view from the 88th floor is amazing-you get a 360degree view of Melbourne including the city and all the surrounding suburbs. There is a deck where you can walk out in the open air which is quite amazing! Definitely take... More

The Eureka Skydeck is a definate, must do, when you visit Melbourne. It gives you the most magnificent views of Melbourne. Sit down and take it all in. Don't forget to take your camera. (and binoculars if you wish.) Enjoy the view of all our sporting facilities and our wonderful city.
