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.

This was a great place to visit to see the city from a vantage point. Queues were a bit long but worth the wait.

Nice view from up there. Before, they show a 3D movie, explaining the city. upstairs has a Coffee shop and a souvenier store. The queue could be long depending on the day. Anyway, worth the visit!

I thoroughly enjoyed my skywalk experience in Sydney. Fab sunny day with clear views over the entire city. The tour guide was great and you could tell she really enjoyed her job. I had walked around the city for two days previous so it was really interesting to spot all the places I had visited. On the down side ......... More

We made it a conscious effort to visit the tall Sydney Tower, while on our bus tour of the city. The elevator whisked us up about 1,000 feet to offer a 360-degree view of the entire Sydney city skyline, the vast harbor, tall buildings and many civic and sport venues. Cruise ships were docked and we could see for many... More

We pre-booked the trip up the tower eye which is what i would recommend. We didn't pay for the skywalk as this wasn't our thing, however the slots on the skywalk were full so if you wanted to do this, book early. The tower had great views across the city - make sure you go up on a clear day!... More

Views of wider Sydney, but what good is that when you don't have a good view of the bridge and opera house? Bit expensive for what it is, and the little video you have to watch before going up is rather stupid. Can be long waits for the elavator so not really an activity that I would recommend.

Going up the tower to the top is really nice views for miles 80km I think a sign said but the thing that let it down was the 4D cinema was told that they was having problems but was fixed but it wasn't the mini film was good just let down with lack of 4D features

We took our 9yo and 6yo up the Sydney Tower to experience the views. Tickets were easily purchasable at the counter on site, however given there were several people in front of us, I jumped online and booked our entry from my phone. It was a simple, convenient process and we were able to enter at least 10 people ahead... More

If you want a really great view of Sydney, this is the way to get it! Unfortunately, you can't take your camera out on the Skywalk, but you can have it at the observatory level. Tip: go early in the morning, before it gets hot. We had the first tour of the day, and just as we were starting to... More

Wonderful views over Sydney, especially the harbour, although new highrises are slowly reducing the majestic views. Photos taken when you arrive are reasonably priced ($40 for a folder and access for free to the digital images). We didn't venture out onto the Skywalk but those returning appeared very happy.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
