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

Fantastic and stunning views of Melbourne -not for the faint hearted though. Great experience for interstate and overseas tourists to Melbourne -don't leave without seeing the amazing view from the 88th floor, you will be blown away.

Oh my goodness, watching the numbers go up so quickly as we travelled to the 88th floor was both scary and exciting. Emerging onto the skydeck we were greeted with amazing views all around. I enjoyed getting my camera close to the glass to get some good wide angle shots. Standing back from the glass, reflections of people behind me... More

We bought the day visit and included a return visit to se the night lights. The daytime visit was ok, but found the windows reflecting on our photos annoying. On our return in the evening we were very disappointed that there was excessive lighting inside, aimed onto the windows so photos were even more disappointing. We took some outside but... More

Had researched this before we went to Melbourne as it seemed to be a great sight to see. The ride up the 88 floors was smooth and quick. The views of Melbourne were stunning and there was no feeling of the building moving. There were a number of school parties on the skydeck but were all well supervised. As per... More

What an excellent value for money experience. Hadn't been to Melbourne for about 15 years so it was a perfect way to get my bearings again. Didn't do The Edge experience and not because I was scared...just didn't feel there would be any extra benefit to doing this. We were there on a beautiful, sunny day and could see for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit up the Eureka Skydeck. The lift is amazing and gets you to the top super fast. Once up there you can walk around various spaces and get views of the city and its surrounding areas. There is also an outdoor area and a special glass cube, (at a cost) that you can view the city...

Nice view of Melbourne CBD, especially when in good weather. But that's it, nothing special other than that.

I would have given this one star but realise the circumstances are probably unusual. We visited this on our last day in Melbourne. The view is pretty awesome when you get to the top - into the bay, the mcg, CBD Etc. However on arriving at the top we were immediately told that there was an electrical fault which would... More

We thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback about your visit to the Skydeck. Firstly we apologise for the delayed response. Having a lift out of action is a very unique situation affecting the building, and it is very frustrating because it is out of everyone's control. We did our very best to keep our visitors informed... More

This is the Australian equivalent of the empire state building. It had a great view of the city, and a freaky box of glass thay hangs you 80floors above the ground unsupported! Doesnt take too long. Great fun for kids. Not for the faint of heart!
