SkyPoint Observation Deck is located on Levels 77 and 78 of the Q1 Building in Surfers Paradise and is Australia's only beach side observation deck. Rising a sheer 230 meters into the sky, SkyPoint is one of the Gold Coast's most popular attractions and has become a must see destination for locals and visitors alike. It provides stunning 360 degree panoramic views that stretch from the surf to the hinterland and beyond and provides the perfect location for visitors to experience the shimmering Gold Coast skyline at night or take in views from Brisbane to Byron Bay during the day. Enjoy a freshly prepared meal from Seventy7 Cafe and Bar as you spot whales migrating along the eastern coast or as a new storm rolls in. SkyPoint Observation Deck is a must-see for all Gold Coast visitors. With unrivalled 360 degree views from the coast to the hinterland, mini-theatrette and informative feature zones and displays that provide all the information you need to plan your holiday hit list. By night, SkyPoint Observation Deck transforms into a chic, high altitude lounge bar with music every Friday and Saturday night and Sunset Sounds on Sunday afternoon. Enjoy drinks and delicious platters with friends and take in the glittering skyline. SkyPoint Observation Deck is an 18+ venue on Friday and Saturday night from 8pm.

Was more impressive that I thought it would be. 77 floors is a long way up to view the world. Beach looks great. Cool watching the video in the ceiling of the elevator, which is VERY fast.

The lift was great, the view was great but it was a very LOUD atmosphere. There is a cafe and tables spread throughout the sky deck and we were walking in and around others eating. It was dirty, busy and I just wanted to get out. I would suggest moving the cafe to another floor, getting some ambient relaxing music... More

A must to visit when on the Gold Coast as the views are truly unbelievable of the surrounding area. Visited for an afternoon Happy Hour for drinks and appetizers with family. The service was efficient and it was a busy Friday afternoon. Would question the music at the time of day as there was a lot of visitors so the... More

Fantastic views of Gold Coast ocean and hinterland. Our tickets were part of a Scoopon package we purchased so didn't have to pay for entry. Felt so high up looking down on the other high rises.

A great place to go up for a drink on sunset and admire the view whilst sipping on some nice cocktails! A small fee to go up and it's well worth it if you're visiting the GC!

My youngest daughter and I spent some time here while the rest of the family did the climb. We were there as the sun was setting and was able to get some lovely photos.
